.... the sketch for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC69 - is really fun.
My first thought was - a witch's hat!!! And off I went to make a witch's hat. But I thought about it a little more and ended up with something entirely different. I remembered the lovely tall hats and veils worn by women in Medieval times and decided to do a birthday princess version of that!
I started off by stamping the ornate vintage banner and cutting it out with the matching nestie. I die cut some vellum and a snowflake to go into the circle on the banner and added some gems. Next I found some pink shimmery fabric from my stash and made a ribbon to go along the base of the hat and added some to the apex as the veil. I covered the base of the card with dark lilac card and added a castle and princess carriage that I'd cut out of a matching sheet of paper. I attached the hat and veil to the card, added some roses and a simple birthday greeting. A card fit for a princess!

When I showed this card to Kathryn - she said that it was lovely and would be perfect for a six year old!! Don't you hate it when they grow up so fast!! So I guess I'll make a box for this one - far too much depth to go in an envelope - and keep it for one of Kathryn's younger friends!
That's all for now - I'm off to sort out the kitchen and utility rooms and get everything back in order. See you later.
