First HYCCT of 2013, Inner Beauty. Lydia challenged us to create a card where the inside reveals the card. A window into the soul, you might say. I used an unmounted rubber stand based on vintage magazine illustrations. The girls dresses were paper pieced. I added tiny word stickers to the mirror they are gazing into. Words that seem fresh no matter the generation!
The Color Challenge was to use the hues of olive, red, and coral...lovely! I used a beautiful glazed paper that combined the red and coral in a shimmery blend. It reminded me to wallpaper of yesteryear. The dresses are two shades of olive. Vintage lace that I cut (horrors!!!) to form a frame for my lovely ladies.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I am curious, what were your buzz words in high school? I grew up in the day of feel in' groovy, peace, Woman, and of course cool!

Gorgeous card!! I can't even imagine cutting that lace, my friend!!! But how fab it looks framing the window into the souls. I grew up in the 50's, and can't remember any catchwords, but the big things were Adler wool sox and saddle shoes in black and white with pink soles!!
