A Knight's Tale

The Cinema Saturday #61 movie for inspiration is A Knight's Tale. I love Heath Ledger. He was a really good actor. Anyway, I like this movie. This card is inspired by William wanting to be a Knight even though he wasn't royal blood. So this saying goes with the movie-"The greatest achievements were at first and for some time, dreams."

I recently bought the Cuttlebug folder Stars. For this challenge, you are supposed to use a star on your project. I ran the red panels through the the folder and then sanded it. I then rubbed yellow ink on it. I then embossed the images on the black panels with gold stardust. I stamped a shield with a lion on it with Versamark and clear embossed it. It is just kind of hard to see! All stamps are StampinUp. I made the saying to look like a scroll. I used the sketch from Stamp Something-Sketch Something. Thanks for stopping by!
