Life was Simpler in Black & White
When I saw the Black, White, and any shade of Green Challenge over at Color My Heart, I couldn't help but think of the old black and white TV's and the old sitcoms from my childhood. I Love Lucy and The Dick VanDyke Show were a couple of my favorites. Of course, I saw them years later in reruns as I'm sure most of you ladies did, also!
I remember the beautiful dresses and fashionable accessories the women would wear and all the polka dots.....and of course, PEARLS!
Now, you might be thinking, "Sure, I remember, but where does the green come into play?" Ah, I'm glad you asked! I remember when we would turn on or off the television, there would be this warm green glow. I'm not sure if there truly was, or if I just remember it that way.
I suppose I'm feeling a bit nostalgic seeing as how I received my first AARP letter in the mail a couple of weeks ago! Yee gads, couldn't they at least let me get through my birthday month?
I have digressed, as I often do, *sigh*....... back to the card! The base was cut welding together Squares 1 and 2 from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. My silhouette was cut from Sentimentals Cartridge. I adhered the top layer to the middle layer and popped that off the first layer with 3-D tape. I cut it lengthwise to accommodate the table and chair legs. The pearls are CTMH Opaques Licorice and Pearl Adhesive gems; the paper is CTMH Daisy White, Black and Sweet Leaf. I tied a double bow with ribbon from the 'bag o' ribbon'-- I really need to organize that someday.
Out to the barn now and then maybe I'll catch up in Mayberry over lunch with Andy, Opie and Aunt Bee!
