Good Bye, Anna May Wong!


There is a time for everything, a time to arrive, a time to leave, a time to live, a time to die...

Anna May Wong was a mere 56 years old when she passed on. This is just 4 years older than my current age. It lead me to some introspection.

Anna May Wong lead a full life and was never hampered by preconceived ideas and prejudices. She carved her own destiny and visited distant shores in search of her dream. The way people treated her did upset her, but she rose above that.

My card pays tribute to a remarkable actress, a remarkable woman, a trail-blazer who triumphed despite adverse circumstances, hostile communities, prejudices.

Anna May Wong, I salute you!

Beautiful Rene - love the graduating layers - love the black & white & the touch of red on her lips!

Rene, this is such an awesome design. I love the effect of the stacked black and white layers. The ribbon is perfect...retro yet edgy and stylish like Anna May. Love the pops of red in the lips and the button. Great write-up, too. I think Anna May touched us all.

Rene, you really made her stand out with all the layers! The bow and rose in the middle work perfect with the rest of the card! =)
Hugs, Elenor

Love your card - those layers are wonderful! Love that little metal rose. It's perfect on the black polka ribbon!
