Lovely Victorian Hat

     As soon as I saw this image over at Julia Spiri, I grabbed it and made this card!  It's actually called "The Victorian Hat" hence my post title today.  Naturally, I had to do a vintage card.  I'm going to use it for a birthday card because my stash is very low on birthday cards but I'm going to put the sentiment inside, along with a handwritten, personal note, and use this for my daughter's birthday card.


     I colored with ProMarkers, use a die from one of my Spellbinders sets to cut it out, and then cut a large oval for the mat (QuicKutz).  I added pearls, dried flowers, a die cut butterfly (2 layers) and used ribbon to make a double-color, double-loop bow.  Too bad it looks so pink in the photo.  It's really pale lilac.

Your daughter will love this because it is just precious. Love the purple tones and your die is very "ladylike" to fit your image. Have a wonderful week.

My first thought was - oh, look, Sunbonnet Sue! Then I realized this is much more elegant than Miss Sue.
GORGEOUS card! Love that image and the side bow and ribbon treatment.
