Retro Eyeglasses Card

Anyone remember the "cat eye" glasses from the 50's?  

This idea was seen today on Facebook.  Here's a link to the original image.   The eyeglasses on the orginal were cut using a Silhouette machine, but I think the ones I used from the Paisley cartridge work quite well.

The mat was cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  I printed the sentiment and then fed it into a Stampin' Up punch from the back side to shape the ends and added a little ink.  The two black dots in the corner were done with a Pearl Pen.

Unfortunately, the gems on the corners of the glasses frame look dull in the photo; they're actually quite sparkly.

Do I EVER remember those catseye glasses! Even wore them. What a clever way to use the idea on a card. Great job. TFS
