" Run for the Roses" Kentucky Derby Blog Hop

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy! Welcome to my little bit of blogland! Today's post is a blog hop, its a new and exciting one it is to commemorate the " Run for the Roses " Kentucky Derby. So what do all ladies love to wear at the races? HATS!!!!  So with this in mind I created a hat and I hope that you like it. 



Here's how i did it!
I took an A4 piece of card and drew 2 circles on it in different sizes, I also cut a length of card and attatched the whole lot together with masking tape! Next I sprayed the base with |Dylusions gold shimmer spray and left it to dry. 
Around the middle of the hat you will see that i have added some pretty gold and white lace and on the top of the hat a selection of flowers from my stash. At the front of the hat i have created a Veil from spiderweb style material with a few little pearls to Embellish it.  I have added flowers at intervals around the front of the hat  stickles for  an extra bit of bling!
