Double Trouble Challenge #2

Last year for my friend Jan's birthday I created a card with a fun flapper dress design.  I really liked that card and it was so totally perfect for her that coming up with something for this year's card was difficult.  I decided to turn to the second Double Trouble Challenge for some direction.  Here is the finished product:
Jan is one of the gals in my Red Hat Society chapter.  This gatefold card is in purple and red, because they are our Red Hat colors.  
I used a feather embossing folder to create a background pattern on the plain, solid color paper (Thing 1 requirement).    
The hat, doily, red circle and words are all die cuts (Thing 3, Twisted Sister's optional requirement).  
And I'll be entering the current Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge (Thing 2, double dare requirement).

I am also entering the following: 
Cards 4 Galz Challenge #73 - Pretty and Pearly
Aud Sentiments Challenge #205 - Anything Goes + a sentiment

  4. Love the sparkly hat and the Red Hat Society color combination and the feather embossed background seemed so fitting. Had a friend's mother back East that was in the Red Hat Society and she had quite an assortment of hats, reminds me of her, and she would have loved this card. Thanks for sharing with us and the cool write up on the DOUBLE TROUBLE Challenge.

  5. Even before I made it to your blog I knew it was a "RED HAT" card. Thank you for playing along with the Double Trouble Challenge...I hope we're your new Monday go to! Such a fun card to share.

  6. Great "Red Hat" design - I may have to CASE your card for a friend! I like the way you decorated the hat and added texture to the background. The doily is the perfect touch. Thanks for playing along at Double Trouble.

  7. Great project. Thank you for sharing with us over here at "A Perfect Time To Craft" and best of luck with your entry.
