Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast at Tiffany's

I always have a big problem when it comes to Natalie's (daughter) Birthday from a very early age Natalie was a typical Tomboy, no girlie clothes or likes, in fact she was a typical lad, so the usual Daughter cards just don't cut the mustard with her, the things that she does like is music, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
So I got out my Safmat by Letraset and got to work on this card and because Safmat is a translucent film that you print on it is ideal for letting the colour of the undercard show through so I ended up with everything matching on this black and white image from the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Photographs print perfectly on Safmat with no bleed of the ink so you end up with a very crisp image.
I teamed it with a DCWV flocked designer paper, black card and a EK Success ribbon border punch and a pretty dotted ribbon.

I am also a great Audrey Hepbut fan. What a beautiful dipicition of Audry's Breckfast at Tiffany's is just lovely. How about more details (after you surprize you daughter.) She is going to just drool and I can see it on the wall in her room.
