Hat and Ribbon

Hello bloggers, hope you are well on this lovely Wednesday.

I am sharing a card that I made for the Monster
 (oops!... Mother)-in law's Birthday..she's really not that bad lol
She isn't a pink, flowery or frilly lady so I always struggle to find something that is just right. So I hope this fits the bill......

The image and the papers came from a very old Joanna Sheen CD Rom, Victorian Companions, which is dated 2007 and, I am ashamed to say, has had very little use!! I added some not too fussy ribbon and a die cut corner to add to the victoriana together with some mink coloured pearls. Hmmm....quite nice!!

I was inspired by these challenges
Use it Tuesday #59 - Birthdays (used an aged CD rom)
The CD Sunday Challenge - Quite Simply Hats

That's it for now. Have a lovely evening xx
