Whew! I had too much to do tonight! I borrowed this stamp set from a girl at work, she brought it today. It is from StampinUp. I had to come home, mow before it rained, fix lasagne for my boys to eat when they got back from turkey hunting, make this card, go to my excersize class, post my card... anyway, I think I got it posted before the deadline at the Cinema Saturday Challenge#75.The movie for inspiration is Oklahoma. I had fun reviewing the clips because it had been a long time since I had watched it. I decided to make a masculine card to honor Curly, one of my favorite characters. He has the most beautiful voice! The saying is Inkadinkado. I embossed the stars with the Cuttlebug. I added flowers, buttons and a gingham ribbon. I used the reflection technique on the horse. You can find how to do it here. I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch #50. Now, time for bed, my excersize class kicked my behind tonight! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love your take on the Cinema Saturday Movie, Oklahoma! Great embossed star backtground and the horse with the shadow. You ALWAYS nail this challenge, Julia, this one is no exception.


  2. Very nice masculine card. You can't go wrong with horses. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. You are one busy girl. I think this card is just wonderful..I love the stars and how you made the reflection of the horse. Great card on all accounts. Thanks so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenge.
