Blogger's Challenge with Loverly London and the Grace of Hats

Connie here and back again to Bloggers Challenge, click on Lisa's Blog and take a tour of all the challenge player's websites. I have been absent from the crafting world for over a year and look forward to creating again and sharing with my followers.
This week's theme is " A Feminine Touch" ...

The history of Women's Fashions, the shift and trends during and after World War ll clearly was a paradigm transformation of their status in society... The hat you wore, seemingly depicted one's status in society. London was a leader in the design and millinery craft of Hats. Can you imagine this era; and, the treasure trove of bonnets and head gear the women of London collected in their closests.
For this card, I designed the background with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist spray. I stamped the altered background with an image from Artistic Outpost stamp collection: Ephemeral Backgrounds. The frame is a dicut from my Cricut Cartridge " Storybook ". The silk flowers are from Prima. The image of the lady is from Artistic Outpost's collection: Loverly London.
Thank you for stopping by www.shadesofstamping.blogspot.com
