I love hats!


I really do love hats, possibly because I'm permanently having a bad hair day, so I had to giggle when I saw this wonderful sentiment from Tiddly Inks. I've paired it with one of the new images from the Victorian Steampunk range, also at Tiddly Inks, and used papers from a new set called Flash of Inspiration which will be in the Crafty Chaos Designs shop sometime tomorrow.
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Mojo Monday - sketch 201
Tiddly Inks Tuesday - use a tag or ticket
Cupcake Craft Challenges - shabby sparkle
365 Cards - at least three background layers
Sparkles Forum Challenges - elegance and lace
Crafty Sentiments - polka dots
Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
4 Crafty Chicks - get your bling on
Sweet Stampin' - fashion
Make It Colourful - colour your embellishments. I had to recolour virtually all of the embellishments in this piece. The bead chain across the top was originally chrome, the bow on the tag was bright pink and the lace at the bottom was grey.
Sugar Creek Hollow - tags
Alphabet Challenge Blog - M is for Metal
