Beautiful Bonnet

 I thought I was done for the day but I couldn't help myself...

This is the tag I made for the Oh La La Challenge over at Bella Creations

Helene supplied us with the image of a woman with a beautiful bonnet for us to decorate. 
The only requirements were that it was to be a tag and the bonnet had to be decorated. We could use the bonnet without the woman but I couldn't tear her away from it. 

I put a couple of slits in the image at the edges of the bonnet so I could put a bit of lace through, then added the feathers and a bit of bling.
The background was a challenge in its self. 
I don't have my Cuttlebug here with me but I really wanted to use my new embossing folder so I inserted the colored paper and grabbed the jar I have a bunch of flowers in. Took a bit of elbow grease but it worked. I suppose a rolling pin would work too, but my son doesn't have one. 
I used a bit of black ink to highlight the embossing. 
The image is black and white because my hub's printer is out of color ink.
Thanks for looking. 
Hugs to all!
