My Fair Lady Blog Hop

Please click here for the 3D Hop

Welcome to the My Fair Lady Blog Hop hosted by Gill. If you've come from Debbie's blog you are where you belong but if' you've happened here by luck, please go back and start at Gill's blog so you don't miss any of the creative ideas to commemorate My Fair Lady.

First a quick history lesson...
My Fair Lady is a musical based upon George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion and with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a well born lady.

The musical's 1956 Broadway production was a hit, setting what was then the record for the longest run of any major musical theater production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version, and numerous revivals. It has been called "the perfect musical". (Wikipedia)

Now for my project. I just love the hat that Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie and as a kid, always wondered how she got such a humungous thing to stay on her head and so as soon as this hop was put in place I knew I needed to be in it and create my version of that hat.

Here is a picture of Audrey Hepburn wearing the hat.
Here is my card.
I had to add some colored feathers for an accent of color since the hat from the picture had some red and pink small feathers and flowers for its accent.

The hat and 3D bow I designed myself and cut out using my Sizzix eClips. I added the yellow embossed paper behind so the hat stood out and then I added some Star Dust Stickles to the bottom in a swirl pattern.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I just love to hear from you in my comments.
