The starting point for the challenge this week was the words "change" and "truth".
I'm not a great lover of "swing music" - I became a teenager in 1960 and so pop/rock and I grow up hand in hand! However I do like the words of "The Way You Look Tonight" which came from a 1936 Fred Astaire film and contains the word change.
I tried to make my lyric postcard look like a picture frame. The oval and the scrolls were cut from embossed thin silver metallic card which I dulled by covering with black paint and wiping off excess.

My quote comes from Mark Twain. As I get older and more forgetful, I'm thankful that I've always been truthful!
I used a brayer for most of the background with a little paint added here and there with a baby wipe.
