Back in my Groove

It's about time I get back to posting and believe I have quite a bit to post, but won't get get all finished tonight.
I'm enter the Joan's Gardens weekly challenge and it's do tomorrow.  Although I've had my card finished way before this challenge came up, I knew I had to go ahead and enter.  I don't meet all the requirements, but I did do a Vintage Card, have feathers(no not chicken), could be a "Great Blue Herron", but I'd  have to climb upon the roof to see if he left a feather.  Yes this is true, he was on our roof for over 15 hours.  I will post pictures later.

Back to the card.
I use Kaiser DP for the background, Bazzil CS, Polynesian Oval by Cherry Lynn, Inkadinkado stamp, and feathers, tiny rose buds. Face is colored with Copic markers, and Prisma pencil.
I have always love hats and that's why I fell in love with this stamp.  I have about 40 or so hats in my collection, many from my high school years, along with a few of my Mothers and Sisters. I have an old black velvet one that was my Grandmothers and is over hundreds years old.  Many other new and antiques one and some that I have even made myself.

So now here is my card for the Challenge.  Hope you enjoy it as my as I enjoyed making it.
