Cupcake 194.... Royalty

Over at Cupcake Craft they have a new weekly challenge which is Royalty.

So here is my take on the challenge.


As most of the royal family served in the armed forces I thought I would base my card around that.  Its also fits in perfectly for my Dad's birthday as he served in the Royal Navy.


I found this old page from a seaman ship manual containing signal flags so I used that for the main topper of my card.  I have also used backing papers from Prima Natures Garden and the stamped images are also from the Prima Printery collection.
