Fashionable hat!

I bought 2 cds recently by Katy Sue Designs called Fabulous shoes and Fabulous Fashion and I love the images on them. So when I saw the theme from CD Sunday was 'Hats' I knew which cd I was reaching for!
I started with the hat image from Fabulous Fashion and cut it into a circle. I then pleated ribbon around the edge - it took me an hour and a half to get it right! I missed the first two sets of the Wimbledon final but managed to catch the nail biting last one!
I wanted a backing paper to match the material on the crown of the hat but there isn't one on the cd so I made my own by drawing lines on a beige piece of card. I picked 2 Promarkers to draw the lines - the colours in the photo aren't true but in RL they match very well, even if I say so myself!

 
I finished the card off with lots of die cuts, the 'green' die cuts are white card coloured with the same green Promarker I'd used to make the BP. I had used card candi on two of the corners but used the wrong glue and they wouldn't stick properly. When I took them off I'd damaged the BP - hence the green triangles under the corner die cuts.

    Your idea to make your own backing paper is super and it does compliment the image. Thanks for joining us this week and good luck in the draw.
