One Powerful Hour Challenge

There is a new challenge site called "OnePowerfulHour", where you have to make a card within the time and this week they start with an open theme. I distressed this card with Distress Ink Pads and stamped the crackle down the side. Have tinted a piece of stampboard and stamped image from B Line Deisgns, added a few rubons, and a border stamp.
Last night we had a power cut about 10pm. Amazing how dependent we are on electricity, everything I wanted to do or needed revolved around a light or power socket so was unable to get on my computer or do any crafting but alls back to normal today. Looks like its going to be a scrorcher here today.

Claire your piece is fabulous...I love the warm colors, the flourishes in the corners, how you broke it up with the criss cross and the gold 3D element used on the crown and wings. It all goes so well together.

Thanks for taking the challenge, looking forward to seeing more of your work.
