Vintage style - Oh what a hat!

This very stylish vintage lady (by Paper Pleasure Plus) was one of my very early stamp purchases when I first started making cards in 2005. She's part of a set of stylish ladies and somehow I've never managed to use her before. The feather stamp is part of a recent Stampendous UM set purchase and I think they're a great match. The lady and the centre of the single feather are heat embossed for extra oomph. Stampin Up striped paper; pink braid from my stash.
