Red Hat Hoots!


This card is for a Mystery Swap on SCS. A group of us are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess. This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette and we are now in our second cycle.   April is the hostess this month and she chose some cute Unity images   April will swap the cards--then send us the next image,  which Paola is going to sent to her.  I can't wait to get the swap cards back to see how everyone else used the same image. Then everyone gets to do it all over again!   

When I got this set of images--the owl, party hat and sentiment, I knew right away I wanted to do a Red Hat Lady themed card.  I have some great red hat patterned paper that I have not used in a long time, so I dug it out and created a gate fold card.  I kept the embellishments to a minimum on the front to showcase the great ladies in purple dresses and their awesome assortment of red hats.



Here is the inside of my card:
