Etsy Inspired: Elie's Happy Hats

Today's cards (yes, two cards!) are for this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge--Elie's Happy Hats! These hats for wee ones are SO adorable, I had to play along...twice!

The first hat that inspired me was this cute little number.

I put lots on texture on this one...embossing the flower and bottom half of my card, using textured cardstock for the leaves and crumpling them a bit, and adding a velvet brad for the flower center.

You like?
The other item I was inspired by are these soft and cuddly baby booties. How precious are they?













I had to make a baby card for this one. I went CAS, using a couple of crocheted flowers, some pearls, and a sentiment.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I love both cards but I think the baby card is my favorite. Because I'm a whore for pearls. ;)
