Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge Card # 1


On of my favorite bloggers has started a new challenge site! Every Saturday a new movie inspired challenge will be posted. Check it out at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.

I am soo excited to post my card for their first challenge. What a great way to be inspired! This week's movie is Pride and Prejudice. I haven't seen the movie nor have I read the novel, but after watching tons of YouTube videos and trailers for both the 1995 and 2005 movies, I was thoroughly inspired.

In this card, I used some lace to mimic all of the ruffles from the movie, a chipboard shape, a pearl straight pin, and some scrap brown ribbon...I decided that it wouldn't be a good period piece without some gold embossing and a Jane Austen quote sticker from 7 Gypsies...the main stamps are from Close to My Heart (I have to pull out every stamp I have and look at them all to find the right ones) and the ink color is Chocolate. Thanks Sankari for a great challenge!!

Wow! I lLOVE your card - it is just so elegant and gorgeous - I love the papers and colors that you chose for these colors - the papers actually look like the fabric worn in this period and in the movie! love the way that you did the technique with the hatpin and the ribbon - that is beautiful! and the touch of lace is beautiful with the quote...

when i was making this card - i spent sooo much time on youtube watching little clips and snippets -- oh! and I totally fell more and more in love with this movie.... someday you have to see the BBC version (it is 6 hours - but totally worth it) . The first time I watched it - I wasn't really sure if I was going to like it - but by the end of the first hour - I was totally hooked and couldn't stop!! LOL! And I guess I am a little partial - but the BBC version has Colin Firth playing Mr. Darcy - and after watching that - no one else quite compares in my book.... I still get a little swoon-y when I watch him as Mr. Darcy... :)

Thank you so much for playing along!!!! You are such a sweetheart and like all your creations - this card is just beautiful!

Can't wait to see what you come up with for next saturday's challenge! Hope your weekend was wonderful!

Sending you lots of sunshine :)
Sankari :)
