Three for One!

I created this card for three challenges.

Cinema Saturday Challenge#47-Forrest Gump
Allsorts Challenge #16-No stamped image
Our Creative Corner-Sketch Challenge

I tried to make this a child-like card because in the movie Forrest Gump, Forrest and Jenny became friends when they were kids. Forrest says " We went together like peas and carrots" My husband and I never could figure this out because we do eat peas and carrots together but we ususally throw in corn and lima beans and call it succotash!
Anyway I always say this but this is one of my favorite movies!
I didn't stamp on this card per the Allsorts Challenge. I used stickers and rubons. The heart paper is Reminisce and the ruled paper is Scenic Route. The fabric circle of the man and woman is cut from a cloth by Elsie. I used various stickers from my stash and the peas are rubons by Heidi Grace and the carrots are stickers by Provo Craft.
I used the great sketch on Our Creative Corner challenge blog. Thanks for stopping by!
