Oscar Wilde Quote ATC

“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Oscar Wilde

Yes, it is time for another ATC swap! This one was inspired by the Wilde one. I thought the quote was quite funny – and it kinda makes you wonder…

I wanted the image to look like it was floating off the edges, so I made the base out of acetate. That piece of pink card is a page from a new range by Making Memories that includes beautiful spiral notebooks with diecut pages.

The pretty girl I used above had a beautiful pair of legs that I just couldn’t throw away, so I made another ATC, which is currently available to trade:

It’s not really a shorter skirt…

I wanted to use an appropriate quote for “legs”, and narrowed the search down to one of the following two:

“…Apart from having 2 good legs I also have 2 good degrees and it is just possible that I know what I’m talking about.” –  Edwina Currie (former British Member of Parliament, novelist)

“It’s not really a shorter skirt, I just have longer legs.” – Anna Kournikova (Russian professional tennis player)

I decided on the latter, just because 🙂

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
