PEARS SOAP : PTW CHALLENGE

Khatarina over at Papertake Weekly Challenge has given us challengees a gorgeous sketch this week as inspiration for our card creations.
Recently I have bought some postcards with nostalgic themes to them at our Fourways Crafters Market. Quite a few of the cards had some brand adverts on them. Most of these brands are still on the market here in South Africa. It was interesting to notice how the branding has evolved over the decades.
I have used the Pears Soap postcard for this challenge. Isn't it just too cute. The poor doggie is probably terrified of having to get wet and being washed with Pears Soap.
Thank you for looking.
