February Birthdays Part Two

It's the birthday of one of our Red Hat chapter members this month and I really enjoyed making this card for her .  The background collage of old French millinery adverts I put together from a couple of free digital images I've had for a while from a lovely lady out there in blog land. If anyone recognises them, please let me know so that I can give her some credit for all the beautiful images she posts.

The centre  image is from my brand new set of stamps from Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary Collection and I love this image. (about right really, being a Red Hatter ) I've inked it up with sepia ink and them clear embossed it to make it stand out. I hate taking photo's indoors, can't wait for better weather. Winter outdoor light is fine for me as long as the wind doesn't blow.

I would like to enter this into the following:
