Cinema Saturday #20

If you're looking for From Courtney's Closet, I'll be back with that a little later. This was due today as well, so I needed to get it posted!! My favorite challenge in all of Blogland is the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - Sankari and Brooke are such clever gals for coming up with this!! It's so much fun - from the sneak peek guessing on Friday to the big reveal on Saturday, to seeing how the movie inspires the players - good stuff!!! I want to play every week, but too often I'm not able to squeeze it in. So this week I was determined!! Which is funny, because I haven't even seen the movie. And the requirement this week was to make the card have a vintage feel, which I am seriously not good at! But I suppose that made it more of a challenge! The movie this week was The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons. On the Cinema Saturday website they also said to be inspired by the tagline "Life isn't measured in minutes, but in moments". I was going to just write that out and use it on the card, but then I noticed this Hero Arts sentiment in my stamp bin and thought it was rather perfect! The rose is from FireCracker Designs by Pamela - I don't know that there are any roses in this movie, but I thought it went with the love/vintage theme. I also got to use a new rose die cut for this, which ROCKS! And of course I had to do the obvious and add some buttons!! LOL! The paper I used is some gorgeous new textured DP from Stampin' Up! called "Parisian Breeze". And the layout is actually the same as the Irish Frog from my previous post, just turned on its side - it's this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I had a lot of fun making this card, as I do every Cinema Saturday card. If you love movies, you need to start playing this challenge!! I can't wait to see the new sneak peeks on Friday! And I hope to suck my brother in again as well!! Thanks for stopping by today. :-)
