Lord of the Rings Inspired Elf Queen

I still remember reading The Hobbit for the first time when I was about 13. I read it back to back 3 times and then went and bought the Lord of the Rings trilogy and did the same thing! I don't think I read anything else for about a year! Just kept reading them all over and over and over. And now I do the same with the films. Every time I have a holiday I watch them all - just love these fantasy stories!

Anyway this card is totally inspired by these books and films for Open Minded Fun Crafting Challenge #28 Movie Inspiration. It is also for Kenny K's Challenge #187 You Are Special and for Polka Doodles Challenge Week 3 CASE It to CASE someone else's card. I absolutely loved this card by Annette when she shared it on the Kenny K Challenge blog back in October last year and it was this card that made me go and buy this gorgeous Elf Queen digi, but I never got round to using her! I CASEd her layout and used the same digi, but went for a more woodland feel of brown and greens.

Anyway here she is...
