Easter Bonnet with all the Frills Upon it

Worked on my Easter cards this week and had a lot of fun working with all the pretty colors and sparkley things. I will post them on Easter, so check back. At Bella Creations there was a tag challenge where you had to use this striking vintage image of a lady in a hat from Gecko Gals. I made the tag, then decided it really needed to be a card, so I could send it out to a dear friend. I also entered it at Creative Belli #115 Eggs /Bunnies and Get Creative "Spring"
On the tag, I edged the photo with sequins then glued on a lot of fabric flowers . The flowers were from Hawaiian Leis from a BBQ quite  awhile ago. LOL. (You know how I love to repurpose stuff!) I added lots of Ranger Stickles and tiny confetti eggs, a stamped bunny covered in glitter and the Happy Easter stamped sentiment. Inserted some sheer ribbon for additional shine, added a rhinestone earring. Put the tag on a patterned card and my darling lady was all set with her Easter bonnet.
Have a sparkley week.
Artfully yours, gerri

"Happy Easter"


  1. Gerri, This is so pretty and love the colors.
    Brings back memories of that Easter bonnet Mom always made me wear,the elastic strap under my chin was a killer!
    Hugs, Amy

  2. Brings back memories for me as well. Every year my Mom and I went shopping for a new Easter Bonnet. It made spring a very exciting time. Your lady is beautiful, Gerri, the lei flowers work very well, and that little bunny in her hat is sooo cute. Love the background paper you chose too. Always a bright spot in my morning to come here and see what you've 'cooked up'. hugs from Mexico, Donna
