Pretty Woman Card


I created this card for 4 challenges.

Cinema Saturday Challenge #50-Pretty Woman
Our Creative Corner-a yummy color combo-white, brown, light pink, hot pink
Basic Grey #4-Embossing
Get Sketchy #5

Congratulations Brooke and Sankari for hosting 50 challenges at the Cinema Saturday Challenge. Go check it out, they are giving away awesome blog candy for the winner. The movie for inspiration is Pretty Woman. I (being the romantic) loved it when the Julia Roberts character says " I want the fairytale." and she got it! Edward climbed up to her window (and he was afraid of heights) and asked her to marry him, how romantic!

You were supposed to use paper piecing for the Cinema Saturday challenge too. I used this techique for the wedding dress (StampinUp). I stamped it twice, one embossed (sorry that you cannot see the embossing very well on this scan!)white on white and the other one in brown, cut them both out and pieced them together. The light pink paper is Basic Grey Sultry and the Fairytale is Basic Grey stickers. The other words are Fontworks rubons. The patterned paper is My Minds Eye. I added pearls, a foam heart and rings from Dress it Up. Thanks for stopping by!
