A festive Easter Bonnet for PPA's sketch challenge this week. I titled this card after the song, The Easter Parade, a very popular Easter song . At Easter, in the church where my father preaches, he started a tradition to get all the women to wear hats or bonnets on Easter Sunday. Of course, the women were more than happy to oblige him, but on one condition......that he wear a 'bonnet' as well. So, my father will wear a beret or a nice type driver's cap on Easter Sunday and have his picture taken with all the women in the church. Thankfully, he lives in WV and I do not have to partake of this tradition (I hate hats except for my Red Sox cap)! I am much happier making bonnets for cards.
I inked the edges of two layers of paper and the bonnet to give it a more old time spring feel since hats were all the rage many decades ago.
