Double D - Kentucky Derby Hat Inspiration

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is

Kentucky Derby Hat Inspiration
Be inspired by what you see on these hats,
maybe it's the colors, flowers even the horse...
look closely there is plenty... does NOT have to be a hat!

 Here is the fabulous mood board she has created to help inspire you . . .

Well, even though it did NOT have to be the HATS,
I spotted an old but adorable stamp set by Crafty Secrets (sadly out of business)
that I thought would work perfectly!
What do you think??
Aren't my 'Friends' adorable with their fancy hats?
Frantic Stamper - Dies - Color Block Card Panel
from both white card stock and black card stock so I could
use the black frame and the white panels to 
stamp my images.  ZIG markers were used for the coloring.
 A hand cut banner, cute little flower and my card is ready to mail
and bring a smile!

 Here's what Diane has up for grabs to one lucky random draw winner.

(OMG how cute is this stamp set!)
So, come play along using our theme and YOU might be our random winner!! 
Be sure to pop over to our challenge blog and check out what the design team ladies have created ... they are amazingly talented and I'm sure you'll find more wonderful inspiration!  
   Hope to see you there!
