Are you staying warm during the arctic blast? I found a way to feel warmer. I worked on these two Queens of Hearts during the below freezing weather we are experiencing. Using and looking at the color red certainly made me feel warmer! Red is powerful and energizing; it’s the color of action, energy, good luck and love.

Regal and proud, wearing their best red finery, the Queens are a mix between vintage Valentines and Alice’s Queen of Hearts.  Red rhinestones, hand embroidery, glitter and beautiful hearts and flowers adorn their costumes. The Queens were made using the new, exclusive to Paperwhimsy forms available HERE. You can read more about how I made these on the Paperwhimsy inspire blog HERE.

The pair is available for purchase on Etsy HERE and there is a 20% off coupon for anything in my Etsy store with the coupon code Queen24 which expires on Feb 14th, 2014. Enter the code upon checkout. There are only a limited number of items available in the shop and some of the listings expire soon.
