Vintage Rick St. Dennis 1935 Hat with a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner

Welcome to Crafty Gals Corner's challenge this week with the theme being VintageWe have Rick St. Dennis as our fabulous sponsor this week offering 2 digital images or 25 percent off Zibbet Store

For my inspiration today, I chose Rick St. Dennis 1935 Hat as it was quite reminiscent of my beautiful grandmother and her two sisters, Lila and Lillian. I remember them getting dressed with a fancy hat complete with aa feather, stickpin and a veil whether it be going to the airport for a trip or church. Below is a picture of my gram and my pap dressed to the 9's:

isn't she beautiful and isn't she a wonderful inspiration for my card???

  • cream Recollection card stock as the base of my card and a beautiful soft pink floral as my background
  • Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch on the right side
  • Darice Satin Edged Organza ribbon with Queen & Co. pearls
  • she was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils with gel pen accents and fussy cut around the edges and of course Stickles
  • chiffon flower with a cameo button in the center with a stickpin using Antique Bronze Wing from Miriam's Craft Supplies but my marvelous stash! 

**** I knew I had these chiffon flowers in several colors and for the life of me I couldn't find the dang things!!! Low and Behold this lone pink one was found in the nick of time which most definitely compliments the card. I hear you asking where was it found - WELL, it was found in the bag of feathers. What does a chiffon flower want with a bag of feathers. All I know is they were meant to be together! ***

  • feather from a goodie bag from Kimberly Pate with Stickle accents 

***added note these feathers need to be hidden and sometimes not found because of a certain kittie thinks its a bird and digs through this bag and feathers are found every where!!!!***

  • scraps from the front of card were used for the background with Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch and 3 little flowers using Fisker's Burst Punch with Queen & Co. Pearl centers

It's a warm fuzzy memory for me of my wonderful grandmother who taught me so much as I had lived with her a good bit of my life. She was a wonderful influence in my life and taught me sew many life lessons  - Gram, this card is for you. God Bless You.
