Hats Off

it's time for another Daisy Doodle card...no challenge, just a card. I have had this hat 'colored' for a long time and just dug it out from the DD file folder.
For this hat I placed three distressing inks on my craft mat, then sprayed some glimmery stuff that I made over that, then rubbed my piece of cs all over the colors. It is very glimmery IRL...wish you could see it with me here.
Used Fired Brick and an aqua-painter to 'paint the flower and Dried Marigold to 'paint' the ribbon/band. Added some Stickles around the background and on the ribbon as well as the middle of the flower. The embossed bg is stitched down to the cs but it's hard to see with the Stickles.
 Pierced the edge of the hat and sponged all around the hat and bg with Old Paper. It's a nice card and extremely flat for mailing...whoohooo.
You can find the hat at Daisy's Digi Doodles Store.
Don't forget the challenge that starts Sept 1 at the Daisy's Digi Doodles Forum.
The theme is 'Anything Goes' using a Daisy Doodles image.
There was a free one on CDAC for those of you that are members.
thanks for coming by!

I'd like to imagine that this is JUST the sort of hat that Lady GaGa would wear to protect herself from the sun when she thinks no one is watching!! LOL
