Posh hat silhouette

This is another card that I made yesterday - for a birthday.

The base card - a 'small tall' one has embossed edges. I cut down a matching piece of pink pearlescent card and wrapped the burgundy ribbon around it, finishing off with a ready made topper that I bought from a little stall in Maidstone - the scalloped oval is actually holographic silver, but that doesn't show on here. The background behind the actual silhouette is just white.

Sorry for the poor photo, but I needed to be quick and get the card into the post.

This is for:
