Vintage Blue

Good Afternoon All, I hope you are all well, I went into romford yesterday to pick up a couple of crafting bits and pieces, I wont say how much I spent but I came home with 13 new paper packs, 4 new stamps and  alot of new embellishments. so I will be busy over the weekend,  this stamp is an old one I am not sure what make it is, I coloured her with promarkers and fleximarkers backing paper from Papermaina capsule, Marianne creatables die cut corners, Martha Stewart border punch, ribbon, doily, gems and charm all from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

You seemed to have indulged in serious retail craft therapy. Enjoy your new buys and we will get to see your fab creations.
This card is just plain royal... not plain but really classy.
The image reminds me of Lady Di in her young days. And the corner gives her much credit.
