Non Valentine's' Day card

Tis the season now to start focussing on Valentine's day. Not too hard for me, since it's my birthday. But being single on the day of celebrating love leaves to be desired. Since I've been single for most of my life, you'd think I'd have gotten used to it. But this is the ONE day in the year that's a bit hard to take.

I'm part of a group that decided to do something novel for VD, and chose 'unrequited love' as the theme. That's different, so I signed up and here's what I made:



I've used one of my own paintings for background, the lady is from the internet, the bird cage from Artchix, and the 'embellishments' are Photoshop brushes.

    Is it just my vivid imagination or do I see an unhappy face in the background of this ATC (In the painted background)

  5. I have to revise my comment. I looked again, I think the face in the background looks pensive, not unhappy. And I like--forgot to say that too!!!

  11. Sox, this is gorgeous, I love your take, so different to the normal and very refreshing...I didn't join in as an Australian who doesn't celebrate VD, I found the concept too alien....Janet B.

  17. Well, Arizona became a state on Valentine's Day in 1912. Perhaps you could celebrate that too. lol I love the ATC and agree with Elena. Valentine's Day is a great birthday for someone like you.
