Just Another Day of Beauty!

This is another card created for the Stampsmith blog. It started with the stamp of the adorable 50's era ladies (Those Were the Days) under the driers. As I looked at these two, I tried to imagine what was being discussed. Even though the gal on the left (clearly the younger of the two) is smiling, I thought it might be under duress. Then I remembered another stamp, also from the 50's, of a perky gal with her morning cup of coffee (Coffee Gal), and I put the two together.

Now, we all know why she has that smile on her face, despite the barrage of gossip being hurled at her. She found her own way to endure a morning at the beauty parlor!

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" with Audrey

I created this card as a design team member for the Stampsmith blog. They have a wonderful collection of images of the gorgeous and stunning Audrey Hepburn. So, once again I was drawn to using her beautiful face in one of my creations.

This stamp captures an illustration of her character, Holly Golightly, from the 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's". I paired the "Tiffany & Co" stamp with a vintage lace stamp to create an elegant, yet playful look.
