Loverly London and the Grace of Hats

 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.
