King for a Day

Hello friends! I made this super simple card for my cousin Brad's birthday. What looks like dotted patterned paper is actually the way the card came- I believe it's by DCWV. The card came in a kit with a mish-mosh of DCWV supplies (oh how I miss the mega-Joann's store that closed), so this is another one of my attempts to use up older supplies. The tan paper is K&Co and I think it matches the tan in the dotted paper pretty well, plus it was mute enough to let the crown stand out. The crown is a giant piece of chipboard by Colorbok. The King for a Day sentiment is actually a vellum sticker by K&Co, but I put it on light colored patterned paper (by DCWV) so it would be legible. I was going to add gems to the lower part of the crown, but then I figured the circles' doodlieness would be covered up and the crown would lose some of its charm, so I left it alone. But all in all it's a very simple card; I wanted to let the chipboard be the star of the show and I think I accomplished that. By the way, the card is 5.5" by 5.5", so I think the chipboard was just about 4.5" by 4.5" (pretty big, no?) :) Anyway, I hope you enjoy my attempt at another masculine card, thanks for checking in!
