The cheerful stamp pad challenge 69

This is my design team card for the first week of The cheerful stamp pad 69: I love your hat. Please click on the link and see the gorgeous crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge. There is a prize to be won from Rick StDennis

I've based my card on the sketch given for Sketch and stash 121, using up quite a lot of stash that I've had for a long time, including the lovely Basic Grey papers:

I've used the 1935 hat digi stamp kindly supplied by Rick StDennis, our sponsor, coloured with spectrum noirs. I die cut around the image and distressed with peacock feathers ink and embossed a couple of die cuts to mat behind, using 'budding vine' embossing folder and Embossalicious dottie from Crafter's Companion. Papers are Basic Grey majorlaine, again brushed with peacock feathers distress ink. Various other elements from stash including the lace that was coloured with the peacock feathers to match and flowers from Poundland. Although I cut into new papers, I couldn't resist using the offcut piece of Hunkydory foiled card, so this is one for Pixie's crafty snippets
