it's the mileage by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday!
 
Today I am sharing a card using one of the fabulous Ai Golden Oldies. Here I used 1925- Power Walkers and my sentiment is 1945- It's The Mileage. The Golden Oldies are always a fun collection to create with!

 
I was planning to keep the colors in this card to pink & black but decided to pull a little blue & orange from the paper. Then I added the green, so it turned out quite the opposite of what I imagined, LOL, but it did bring the old gals to life!
 
I didn't want the large main panel to cover up so much of the background papers so I trimmed the top with my trimmer...up to the first gal's arm on either side. Then I fussy cut around her hand and left it hang over the panel's edge.
 
 
Don't you just wonder what their conversation is about? When I look at the above photo in black & white, it reminds me of the comic strips! LOL. That might just be an idea for a future card...hmmm.
 
Have a great Monday and… happy stamping!
