OK, so do you wanna to see what I've got for ya? I used Puttin' On the Glitz for my project and I really had fun with this. I dunno, when I first saw this image with that big 'ole hat I immediately thought "Red Hat" so I went with it!

I decided a Fantasy Box would make a terrific gift box for a Red Hat sister, and I *had* to have a card to go with it, of course! I stamped the images on Perfect Paper Panels with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers and paper pieced the dresses. I'm using Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red, and More Mustard card stock to go with the perfect-for-this Marrakesh Vines patterned paper by Bo Bunny. Embellishments include red and purple jewels, Prima flowers, jewel brads, and leaves punched with a Martha Stewart leaf punch. I popped the images up on 3M foam squares, which worked perfectly to allow the box top and bottom to slide up under the matted image panel. I love the way this turned out and I hope you do too!

I'm so glad you dropped by! Now, head on over to the fabulous Carole's blog to see what wondrous things she has in store for you! I know you won't be disappointed!
