Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - Thief Lord

Hi Friends! My goal today while I'm on the college campus is to catch up on my blurfing and commenting. You all have been so kind visiting my blog and commenting. I really appreciate it. I've been feeling guilty that I haven't been stopping by your blogs and saying hello as often as I used to. Driving and waiting for my daughter has taken a huge chunk of my day so I now have less time doing the normal things I used to do. I'll bring my netbook today so I'll be able to use my time visiting and seeing what you all are doing.

Yesterday I walked around downtown Riverside. The plan was to visit a church and take some photos but it turns out, they were closed. I didn't realize churches close. . .I thought they were open daily. LOL! The museum next door was closed too. It turns out the museums are closed on Mondays. I basically drove to downtown for nothing so I just walked around and took pictures of buildings again.

Hey. . .I decided to participate in the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. The movie choice for this week is "Thief Lord" and the challenge is to create a "friendship or brother/sister" card.

I decided to create both. I think this card can pass for both a brother and sister and friendship card.

I used the pretty flower design from a designer paper, cut a part of the flower and slipped the Sarah Kay image under the leaves. It gave it a scenic appearance.

If you have designer papers with large images or patterns. . .they can make for great decorative designs for your cards.

Anyway . ..stop by Cinema Saturday and participate in the challenge! It's a great way to find information about movies and participate in a challenge all at the same time!

Well gotta run. . ..it's time to drive out again! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Card Details:

Stamps: Sarah Kay, Stampin Up
Papers: DCWV designer paper, SU Certainly Celery, Pacific Point
Ink: Copic Markers, SU Pacific Point
Accessories: Darice rhinestones, Basic Basic Ribbon, SU Large Oval Punch, Fiskar Scallop Scissors

Wow, what a cute card! I love that idea of using a big design on your card. Most people shy away from big designs. Great idea Maria!

Viv said...

Fabulous composition Maria! THe layers are stunning and that big flower is a show-stopper!

Gone are the days wen a church was open 24 hours a day. Sorry to hear that you were not able to to get some photos of the church.

Maria, you drive 100 miles a day during the week, wait on campus or wherever until your daughter finishes class and you STILL have time to create? Well, let me tell ya, I love this card with the pretty colors. Great take on this Cinema challenge. Good idea to cut parts of a large design from DPs as you have done. Clever! Well, hope the church is open tomorrow! Hugs, Cami
