Your Majesty - A Little Bit Of Fun

Hi di hi all!
I have to begin by saying Happy 4th of July to all our friends across the pond!
I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating!

Now, it must be Thursday as here I am with a card for 
This little patriotic card is a foldback card.

I had a little bit of fun with this one!
As some of you will know, I live in Edinburgh & this week,
Her Majesty The Queen is in residence!
This card is in her honour! 
The Royal Garden Party was held at Holyrood Palace this Tuesday
 & it rained non stop! I can just imagine  Her Majesty remaining 
outwardly calm whilst I'm sure she'd much rather be getting in a
 buggy & heading for shelter! lol

The image is of course Your Majesty & is a snip at just $2 
or £1.31 if you live in blighty! 
I coloured the image with a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers.
(I'll let you in to a little secret, I coloured the image to 
match some other papers but I got distracted & cut the paper 
too small! As I only had one sheet I had to change things a bit!

The papers I have used are part of a pad
called British by Southfield Stationers,
the Keep Clam squares are part of the papers!
The lace, dew dops & gems are from my stash.

Here's a side shot to let you see the fold!
