Greta Garbo

I've had another go at a
this week the challenge was At The Movies..
the only requirement was that you had to have a least one stamp on your project.
I chose the very beautiful Greta Garbo, this image of her was on the cover of Silver Screen from November 1930. A little history, she was born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson 18th Sept 1905 and died 15th April 1990 aged 84yrs. Star of The Temptress, The Torrent and many other films both Silent and Talkies..
In 1955 she received a Liftime Achievement Award at the Academy Awards..
On this Tribute to Greta Card I used - Daisy D PP, Catslife Press Stamp (this is a True Story), Autumn Leaves Flourish Acrylic Stamp, Bella Chipboard Frame, Cosmo Cricket PP (on frame),
Ribbon & mesh lace from Ruby St Designs, Jumbo Crystal Brad.
