Hats Off To You

Hats off to you! It's Marvelous Monday!

Today's featured image at Shelly's Images is this wonderful top hat. I love the elegant look of this image. It's perfect for wedding cards, or even invitations to fancy events.

Don't miss out on your chance to own your own top hat! It's available for a special price, today only, in the Shelly's Images Store.

My card today is done in one of my favorite color combos. Pink, white and black. This card was created strictly from items from my stash. Nothing was bought new, for creating this card. I'm going to be sad when this polka dotted paper is finally gone, since I absolutely love polka dots! (Well, on cards, anyway, but I hate wearing them! LOL!) The pink adhesive pearls in the corners seemed to be a perfect touch. The image is cut out and embossed using nestablities and colored with Promarkers. The pink flowers are by Martha Stewart. I've used a Martha Stewart punch to make leaves for accenting the flowers. This card had to have some sparkle, too, so that is where the glittered ribbon comes in!
