The Jewel in my Crown

Hi you all!
Well, actually, the only crowns I have are dental ones, without jewels, but never mind!
The challenge over at  Out of a Hat this week is 'jewel in the crown', and here is my card:


The background has been stamped using various stamps from LaBlanche, and then the lion and window were stamped twice and fussy cut to make them pop a bit. 
And someone is behind the window, watching....



Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  7. Eine wundervolle Karte, Valerie. Mir gefällt, dass sie so dreidimensional wirkt. Die Queen hinter Gittern hat was. Sie sitzt in ihrem goldenen Käfig, während der Löwe seine Krone in Freiheit tragen darf.
    Aber es scheint sie (noch?) nicht zu stören, denn sie lächelt.
