Thank you Michelle

The other day I asked Michelle Perkett if she had ever considered adding a fancy feathered hat to her digi images.  And today on Michelle's blog, she has posted a lovely feathered hat.   
Thank you so much, Michelle!  
I just couldn't wait to use it.  
The Muse Challenge posted  their new challenge card yesterday
and I thought it would be perfect for the hat, or for 3 hats.  I reduced the digi  image to 40%, copied it 3 times and printed it up.  I love how you can do that with digis. I scored the white CS above and below the hats, colored them with alcohol markers, added some bling, the ribbon and a sentiment.  Voila! 

(The dark plum paper is showing up awfully blue on my computer screen, and the flowers are a light mauve.)  And I think that ribbon might need a hat pin.  What do you think?)

I will be entering this in the following challenges (after I make dinner):

  4. I like your card just the way it is. The hat image is adorable and I love the repetition. Great colour choices. The matting and gorgeous ribbon really emphasize the colours on the hats.
