Challenge 62 OOTH

Well here we are at the end of the month and it my last guest appearance  for the wonderful ladies at Out of the Hat challenge.
The brief I was given was Jewel in the crown, what ever that means to you, my mind wandered to the TV series of the same name then the crown jewels and rubies but did you know that what was thought of be a ruby, is in fact a spinel !



So here's my offering of an ATC. I wonder what the other have done ? and where it will take you !
