Happy Birthday Hat

I decided to make this cute party hat. 
I used some of the new In Colors.  I really struggle with the new Summer Starfruit.  Yellow is not my favourite colour by any means.  But I really like Navy so I thought I'd try out this combo.

I'm entering this puppy in the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge this week.
This week they want party favours that can be "Anything BUT a Card."

 I used Summer Starfruit ink on paper of the same colour for a tone-on-tone look.

I punched out a lacy trim and then pleated it so that it would lie flat along the bottom of the hat.

I curved a few strips of paper for a burst out the top of the party hat.

Here's another look at that lacy border.
