Majestic Majesty!

I think Summer has finally arrived here in Cyprus. The weather is fabulous!! The fruit is ripening nicely on the trees in the orchard. So there'll be lots of jam making in this household very soon.

On to today's card. The CD Sunday Challenge is all things Majestic in honour of Her Majesty's birthday.

Thinking caps on for this one team lol. I found a great image of a 'stag at bay'. Now if that isn't majestic nothing is. And Her Majesty loves all things Scottish so I went with it. The image is from Pyramid Krazy CD. I didn't pyramage it tho. Instead I used the bottom layer as a tag and created the background to the card with the matching background paper and metallic paper from papercellar. I cut 2inch squares and put them diamond shape up and made a patchwork background. Where they joined I added green flowers to neaten it up.

I hung the topper on a piece of green ric rac ribbon and tied a bow to the top.
 
 On the topper I also added the green flowers and green Happy Birthday sticker.......hope she likes green lol!!

  3. Lovely card, yes the stag is a majestic animal.
    I am so glad summer has arrived in Cyprus as we are going to your island in September for two weeks, hopefully our spring will have arrived and we might be in summer by then here in the UK,
