Self portrait friday!

Old birthday card for my father that my mother saved, 1964.
Vidal sasson haircut( called "an artichoke")
mini skirt
Notice my husband(then boyfriend's) fraternity pin
card is 9"x14"
Yes, this was hand drawn by me of me, a self portrait!!!
I thought my card was very similar to the contemporary cards being made at that time.
The cards were usually narrow and tall and had minimal writing on the inside.
