Red Hat Society Day ~ 25th April

It's the Red Hat Society day on the 25th April and we are celebrating our 14th birthday.  I created this celebratory card with the gorgeous image from Jess of Floppy Latte of 'The Goddess of Class and Elegance and you can find her at StitchyBear Digital Stamps right here. Check out the other gorgeous Floppy Latte digi stamps, they are beautiful.  I creased an A4 sheet of white card into a gate fold and attached three panels of black card.  I've coloured the digi image with a poppy Promarker  and added a few die cuts from Memory Box and Spellbinders.

It's Challenge #109 and the theme is "Bright" over on the OSAAT blog and our sponsor this week with a brilliant prize of £10 GBP is Joanna Sheen.  Pop on over to her website for a taster of what you could be spending your prize money on.

For a chance to win this prize you must use a StitchyBear digital image on your project.  If you to join in the challenge with a non StitchyBear image, you will  be entered into the runner up draw of $3 USD to spend in the online store here, check out the gorgeous images, there's always something new being added.

This card is dedicated to Stitchy's Mom who is a Red Hatter too, have a great day on the 25th, Stitchy's Mom!  I'll be toasting you with tea and cakes on the day.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
