Pretty Birthday

I very much enjoy participating in the challenges at Splitcoast, and the Inspiration Challenge is one of my faves. Today we had a visit to Village Hat Shop for our inspiration, and I picked this Organza Ribbon Hat for my inspiration. I just hosted an Afternoon Tea on Thursday with a wonderful group of ladies that I take watercolour classes with, and the Afternoon Tea's of yesterday with the hats was discussed, but not mandatory - giggles! I mimicked the organza by way of embossing my background panel, and added die cut flourishes cut from vellum to mimic the softness of the flower on the hat.  A panel (the ribbon) for my sentiment and sequins and a crystal finished my card. Very fast and simple, but pretty I think. Thanks for having a look today.
