Sunday Postcard - Mirror Mirror


Once again I forgot and created my piece in a 6x6 format, then had to figure out how to fit it into a 4 x 6 postcard!! I "borrowed" the cover of a vintage Ladies Home Journal, put my art piece in the middle, and added the phrase at the bottom. The background and mirror are from Kubivet, the trunk from Jenn U Designs, and the lady and wardrobe from Flickr Collage Images Victorian paper dolls (SuzieQ). Best seen enlarged. The script reads "Taking joy in living is woman's best cosmetic", a quote from Rosalind Russell. Thanks for looking!
