Today's card is for a challenge over at Moxie Fab World. The theme is Playing Cards.

The red folded card base is 8.5 x 12.5 and opens from the bottom. I chose this size because it was a left over piece sitting on my desk.
Image was stamped in Stampin Up Real Red. The black mat is die cut from Tim Holtz ATC die.
'Queen for a Day' are words stamped and cut out from EK and Memories in the Making.
'Celebrate' from Darkroom Door 'All Occasions' set.
Chipboard crown from Scrapware was coloured in gold gel pen. Added some red rhinestones from Kaiser.

The playing card stamp is from Darkroom Door "Playing Cards" set.
I was lucky to win this fun set from a Inkurable Stampers challenge

I also made some ATC's for the Monthly Darkroom Door ATC swap which is 'Masked Stamping'

For the ATC's I used 1920's Chic and the Playing Cards sets.
The lady in red was masked to create the background. On scrap paper a stamped the Queen playing card and cut out the Queen of Hearts image with a craft knife. I used the left over piece to 'frame' the lady.
Matted onto black ATC die cut. Added a red button and some red rhinestones.
I am looking forward to seeing what other stampers have created for this swap.
