Royal Crown Jewels

Do you have a Cricut that's been gathering dust due to lack of use?  I know I've been pretty lazy about pulling mine out and using it.  It's a good thing Frances challenged the CCEE Stampers to use them in our design today.  I used the hat from the Sweet Treats cartridge using brushed silver cardstock.  It reminds me of a crown, so I bejeweled mine with gemstones.  I used my Ultramarine Copic marker to color the tiny clear gemstones on the bottom of the crown and the ones down the left side of my card.  Gotta love those Copics!  I scored the lines in the middle of the crown.

Please visit our CCEE Stampers blog to see what Cindy, Shirley, Frances, Tosha, and Joanne created.  Perhaps you'd like to join us!
