A card for a Queen (Regal/Diamonds/60th to tie in with Queen's Diamond Jubilee)

Hi, it's Sue here and it's my turn to host the next challenge. First, though, a big thank you to everyone who joined us in the last challenge and showed us their favourite technique. Make sure you check back next Friday to see if you've won ! 

So, now onto the new challenge and as the build up to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee is well on it's way, we thought it would be a good time to join in ! The challenge this time is to make a card for a Queen, this could be a regal card, it could include diamonds or be a 60th card.  You choose !
