A Royal Summer Birthday

Good Morning. Here in Canada, it is the Friday before a long holiday weekend and I must say that I am certainly looking forward to it. The weatherman says that it will be sunny and not too hot which means that it is just perfect.
Today is also the start of a new challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia. This time around, the theme is
Summer Royalty
Princess, Prince, Queen, Jester images. 
If you don't have a "royal" image, you can use Royalty colors: Red, Purple, Gold, Dark Blue

Stamp and Create carries a wide range of Magnolia stamps at some of the lowest prices!
For my card I have coloured Jester Tilda which is currently available in the shop. I coloured her up in Royal colours of red and purple with touches of gold and did not give much thought to paper until I was done.  Fortunately a few weeks ago I had picked up the Soleil paper pad from Basic Grey which matched the image perfectly.
As I was going for a Royal feel I thought that this card should be properly embellished. Lots of flowers and a diecut frame for the mat added just he detail that I was looking for. A simple sentiment on a little banner finished it all off.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to have some time to be back again with something else to show you over the weekend. Until then have a great day!
I would like to enter my card in the following additional challenges:
