Marilyn, with a gift for you



I have always been a Marilyn Monroe fan, so when I saw that this week's Art Creations Friday challenge image was an old publicity still, I was delighted.

I decided to keep it very simple. I hunted down her autograph online, then used a simple holiday message from a vintage Christmas card. Combining the three, along with a few stars -- fitting for a movie star, no? -- and a red border, and that was that.

And speaking of that vintage holiday message, I'd like to share it with you. Just click on the image below to see it full-sized, then save to your computer. It's a PNG file, meaning the background is transparent (even though it appears white to you here). I hope you'll be able to use it for any holiday creations you have planned this month! And if you'd like to see a few more of my free downloadables, please visit my Freebies set on Flickr!
