Lady Randolph Churchill

Mary at Green Paper has set another challenge in which we have to use the 3 elements provided. This one concerns Lady Randolph Churchill, who was the mother of Winston Churchill. I did a little reading about Lady Churchill (born Jennie Jerome) and she was, how shall I put it, a bit of a racey girl! She is reported to have had many affairs, a very ahead-of-her-time trendy tattoo on her wrist, and was quite a career woman. She really was a free spirit, just like the bird on this atc.

Great ATC! I agree with Mary - the feather and the string are clever; also the way you turned the postage stamp on its side. Love this!

Jo!
I really like your lady randolf/jennie jerome ATC. Somehow, I missed it earlier. I adore the way you wrote out her name and "free spirit'. And thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comment!
