Pretty Hat

I remember always being dolled up for Easter and that my ensemble frequently included a hat. Anya, from The Greeting Farm, makes quite a fashion statement in her pretty hat too.

The layout for today's card is based on Mojo Monday sketch #81. What?? It's Friday?! Good thing my stampin' mojo stuck around all week! ;) I combined the sketch challenge with Color Throwdown #37: Cameo Coral, Pink Pirouette, and Sage Shadow.

Sweet Anya was stamped onto watercolor paper and colored using blender pens and ink 'puddles'. (Smoosh your ink pad to create a puddle on the lid and then take your blender pen for a dip.) Her hat and skirt are paper pieced with a print from Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper. Anya's some-bunny special is perfect with Easter coming up.

I love this sentiment from the NEW Great Friend set featured in the Occasions Mini catalog. Who's your best friend that makes good times great?

Today's sassy somethings are: three pretty white buttons from Button Latte -- the perfect dainty touch, and some quick paper piercing I did on the scallops. Hats off to being sassy!
