CD Sunday - Hats

I'm hoping that this is going to post correctly, as I'm out most of this weekend I am going to schedule it for Sunday morning. As I'm writing this it's a beautiful Friday afternoon and the tennis has just started on the TV, the big question is, get outside and enjoy the sun? or sit on the edge of my seat and watch the tennis?

Anyway onto this weeks challenge on the CD Sunday blog, and this week it's Hats. As it's the first Sunday of the month we have a sponsor, and this month it's Jems Designs. Also we see a new guest designer for July, and it's the return of Tess. Tess used to be on the design team, so it's lovely to be welcoming her back. The lovely ladies at Jems Designs have given the DT one of their CD's to play with, Hat Box Collections. There are some wonderful hats on the CD, but this is the one that I decided to use. Also the great thing about these CD's is that they are Jpg images, so you can take them into the graphics program of your choice. Mine was My Craft Studio. I resized the A4 backing paper to A5 so that I did not lose any of the design, and popped onto a pearlised white A5 card base, with a cream coloured ribbon across the middle. I printed off one of the toppers, which had some flower embellishments which could be layered, and fixed using glue gel. The cameo was also an embellishment, which once printed and cut out I popped onto the ribbon and added some square gems onto the edge and along the ribbon. Then I just resized one of the sentiments so that it was not to large on the card to finish. Do pop over to the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have made.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comment which are always appreciated.
