Welcome to the second Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.
Can I even tell you HOW excited I am about today's Cinema pick?!! SOOoooooOOoooo excited! I absolutely love and adore Audrey Hepburn - she is just the epitomy of style and elegance. I grew up watching her in My Fair Lady (one of my father's favorite movies and he presented me with this movie when I was 12 - and I have since watched this movie over 60 times.... I totally know it by heart... and I feel like I have memorized all of Audrey's looks and mannerisms and little gestures. When I finally got to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time - I was just struck by her effortless grace, beauty and elegance. One of my favorite scenes is the opening scene where the taxi drops her off in front of Tiffany & Co - it is just gorgeous - the way she walks out and the dress! that she is wearing is just so gorgeous - sigh!! she is just beautiful!
Here is a quick collage of her dress that I made in honor of this opening scene from the movie - she is just so elegant!
And it was really this dress that inspired the cards that I made for this challenge:
There are so many points of inspiration from this movie and I have to say that I feel like I could make at least a few more cards using some of the other themes in the movie. But for now, I created two cards and when I was taking pictures, I just had to create a little "scene" by posing my cards next to the box from Tiffany & Co. from which we received our candle holders from our wedding 7 years ago. My DH has asked me so many times, why I store a box with nothing in it...
Well, I can't very well throw out a Tiffany's box, now can I? and I haven't found anything extraordinary to store in it - but right now it makes me happy to know that I have a Tiffany's box in my closet, LOL!
Anyhoo! I had to make the cards with that Tiffany blue color in it - so my colors were black, white and Tiffany blue :) This first card that I made is an ode to Audrey's dress in the opening scene. I wish I could say that I made that dress, but I did not.... it was actually from a group of stickers that my MIL sent me a few years back - and I never wanted to use it because it is just too beautiful... and so I was psyched to use it today for this challenge. For this card, I used the sketch from Julee's Mojo Monday #45 - from a few months ago - it is a great sketch and fit perfectly for this challenge. The sentiment was created on my computer and then corner rounded. I made this card for a particularly fabulous friend of mine. The bottom embellishments are pearls and the scalloped edge was created by a corner rounder.And then after I was done with this first card - I had all these scraps and had to make another card. So I kept it kinda simple - no stamping just adhering all the scrap together. This card was hard to take a pic of because of the diamonds on the circle around the "flower" were shiny and I couldn't capture their glittery gleams in the sunlight . I don't say this often - but I really like how this second card turned out - it was actually the one of the quickest cards I have made because it was basically putting together my leftovers . I have a had this button sitting in my button stash for quite a awhile and was totally psyched to finally use it, as I was to finally use this ribbon from my ribbon stash. The bling and and brads have been in my stash forever ( I was going to use it for a scrapbook layout and bought it so long ago - but it seemed perfect for this card to honor Audrey's Tiffany pearls and diamonds :) and the cardstock were just the leftover scraps from the first card.
Hop on over to Brooke's blog and see her beautiful take from this movie - she always blows me away with her beautiful creations!
