Merci Beaucoup Rosie

This 6 X 4 card is for both the Sunday Postcard Art's "Long Live the Queen" challenge and for Gothic Arches' "Patchwork Papers" challenge. I layered four different papers with an altered magazine cutout of Marie and then drew on her Mardi Gras face paint with a Uniball marker. The flower brooch was in one of my 50th birthday countdown surpise goody bags from Ava. I made this card as a thank you card (Created By Hand)for my BFF (blog friend forever) Rosie from Altered Art & Stuff. Yesterday Rosie sent me a lovely surprise in the mail. She had noticed my apparent fondness for jester hats and sent me the most gorgeous one all the way from the UK! I will have to take a photograph of it later to show you. I tried to get Marie to pose in my jester hat for this card, but she was too stubborn (can you imagine?) to put on a hat. I guess she was too vain to mess up that coiffure.

Hey Alberta!! Shame on Marie!! I'm so glad it arrived and more to the point, that you like your new accoutrement! What a wonderful card - I do love Marie in her amazing wig and brooch - oohlala!
I adore your Sleepy Hollow post and would that I could pop over on my broomstick to join the fun and revelry! The Legend of SH is one of my fave films - with Johnny Depp, of course....and fancy you knowing Tiny Dancer, never mind it being your all-time fave song! Small world, isn't it? xxx
