Magnolia-licious Challenge "Love is in the air"

Hello and Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Challenge "Love is in the Air"

Pinch me I still cannot believe I am a Magnolia-licious DT! lol
 For this challenge I made a Top Hat

The images I used are "Tilda with Dot bow" and "Bonny Tilda", both are colored in Copics. 

On Tilda's outfit I used a Gelly roll pen and a Micron 01 pen to make the white and black dots.

I found this very pretty tulle and pearl piece at Hobby Lobby and it fit perfectly around the base of the hat. To dress the bottom up more I added a few pearls and flowers.

The top of the hat is covered in lace with a Memory Box heart box die, which I put tulle inside so it would cascade out of the heart box and down the side. I also used WOC, Magnolia and Kort and Godt flowers on top.

I cut our the paper feathers and distressed them a bit and then added it to the feathery taupe feather along with gorgeous sugared Prima flowers.

A better look at the top

Here is the back of the hat with some hearts, pearls and the Doohickey die, large butterfly.

I love those little Magnolia hearts.  On one of the hearts I Frantaged a metal key with Shabby White.

My top hat was destroyed by our playful kitty.  She climbed up to my shelves on the wall and had a lot of fun with this hat, lol thankfully I had this photographed for my DT post.
