Hat trick


Hi! Hope everyone's enjoying a lovely relaxing Sunday! Just a quick post from me to share the card I made for my baby sister's birthday! This fabulous East Wind image reminds me of Claire, it's gorgeous, just like she is! I coloured her with copics (the image, not Claire!), fussy cut her and sat her in the hat, which is hand drawn. The whole image is mounted onto a die cut and embossed circle, the hat is shaped to add dimension. I think she'll be pleased with it.
Thanks for visiting.

I usually favour lots of white space but I'm loving the vibrancy of your entire card front! So striking and your colouring is awesome. Thanks for sharing at ATSM this week, Anita x
