A day at the races -need a hat

It's a bit rainy and very grey today ,the light is not very good for taking pics. I've done my best but you can see shadows . The butterflies all have a green gem in the middle which is not very clear.I'm using a different camera today as Steve has taken the good one to take some work related stuff.

The Lollipop Ladies - challenge 13 - Mint Fudge shown above. For some reason I really struggled to come up with ideas and this card is my third attempt .
The flower and hat band are made from gauze ,my first aid box had several unopened packs (I have enough stuff in there for any medical emergency imaginable ,thankfully never used ).I mixed a small amount of water with brown acrylic paint in a dish ,soak the gauze then leave to dry.

Well I think you did well with your card....I would still be drooling over the mint fudge. :-) What a great use for the gauze.

What a great idea, never thought of my 1st Aid kit as an inspiration piece! Thank you for sharing your sweet creation at Lollipop Ladies this fortnight!
