Queen for the Day

My original idea for this creation was to follow today's LSC...however, it did not end up that way! I was having way too much fun and didn't want to stop. Today's LSC was to make a Valentine that could easily be reproduced for 30; Enough to send to your child's class. I wanted to just make a few so that I could use them as tags to attach to goodies for my friends, but then it took a whole new turn and I decided to make a decoration for my daughter's room. My daughter *loves* Alice in Wonderland and loved the Tea Cups and the Alice in Wonderland ride at Disneyland. I thought this would look nice in her room...and it does! She loves the little things I make for her. Funny story about her. She recieved some *Sassy Stamps* from Santa Claus and has been busy stamping. She had stamped a whole page of images, colored them and applied her glitter glue with precision. I said that she did such a good job. I said that she did such a nice job it looked like something I would do...she then said, No Mom, Better than You! Not in a bratty way, but a cute Emma way. She does take after me in so many ways. Anyway...on to the creation!
I used my "Alice in Wonderland" Rubber Stamp set from TJ Designs that can be found here: http://www.tweetyjill.com/ I also used The European Collection Scrapbook and Collage papers from Tweetyjill Publications that can be found from the same link. I colored The White Rabbit with prismacolor markers and copics. I distressed all of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger. I added a border of paper lace using my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch.ETA: I punched the lace border using Ultrasmooth white cardstock from SU! I have a hard time punching through thick cardstock! Can you tell I love that thing? I added some buttons, ribbons and glitter for the finishing touches. I simply punched holes at the top using my cropadile and then tied some silk ribbon for the "hanger". I had way too much fun with this!
After I got home from picking my daughter up from Kindergarten, there were two boxes on my doorstep. One from SU! and one from Papertrey. I can't wait to tear into them and get creating! I feel like a kid in a candy store! So many stamps...so little time! LOL! Thanks for fluttering by!

Oh my Kelly!!! This is fantastic!!! All of the elements that you've used are just perfect! Seriously!!! WOW-- picking my jaw up off the floor--

question: does your Martha Stewart punch not work on thicker paper? I have had trouble with a couple of her border punches--
