Gauche Postcard

For the new Gauche Alchemy Challenge - to use this vintage ad as inspiration:

The image is from an Adobe Photo Library I found at work. The background is some old Basic Grey papers i cut and put back together. I used that Punchinella which is behind the girl also for the stencil of the dots. The text at the bottom is from some super old old old book i got at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago.
The paper lace I misted with my new Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist to match the paper better.

i gave it to a friend who needed some cheering up - one of her favorite quotes is "have you heard? the bird is the word" - so that's where that comes from :)
Check out the GA blog to see how others interpreted the ad - it's so interesting and fun!
