The Library Challenge - Breakfast at Tiffany's

The new Library Challenge  is Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote. I've read the book but I don't think I've ever seen the film, although it's more famous.

Anyway, for my first card I tried to evoke the glamour and the city setting . The woman is a Funky Fossil stencil and the stamps are Kaisercraft and Clearly Besotted. 

I'd like to enter:
Alphabet Challenge  ebony
Unicorn Challenge  monochrome 
CAS on Friday  birthday
Seize the Birthday patterned paper
Cas-ual Fridays birthday 

For my second card I used a Stamping Bella stamp to depict Holly Golightly reading about herself in the paper. I used two stencils for the background. 

I'd like to enter:
Crafter's Castle  technique - paper-piecing 
Sweet Stampin paper piecing  

“Never love a wild thing...If you let yourself love a wild thing, you'll end up looking at the sky.”

I'd love it if you popped over to The Library and entered the challenge.

Woo hoo - I guessed right! Love your cards, Marina. The book is very different to the film in that Holly Golightly's character is more sympathetically portrayed and it's all rather more romantic. Jo x

Love both cards. Your first card in black and white looks amazing with that face in the background of the landscape, just stunning.
