Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #16 - The Wizard of OZ


Good Saturday Morning Everyone,

This Saturday, Brooke and I are so excited to feature the movie: The Wizard of Oz for the weekly Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge First of all, can we just say that we are impressed and blown away that you guys could guess that from those itty bitty sneak peeks!!! Seriously - you are all amazing with your guessing ability! The movie the Wizard of Oz was released in 1939 (can you believe that this movie is 60 years old!!!) according to Wikipedia movie received an Academy Award for best Original Song and was nominated for several Academy Awards as well as being nominated for Best Picture. This movie is often ranked in the Top 10 in film circles and the song "Somewhere over the Rainbow has been voted as the Greatest Song of All Time by the American Film Institute. Last week we had a Color Challenge and this week we wanted to have a different challenge - that your card, layout, project that is inspired by the movie: The Wizard of Oz have something metallic in it (it could be some brads, metallic paper, ink, etc.)


When I watched this movie when I was young - my favorite character was the Tin Man - he was always so sweet and always getting rusty. My card is inspired by his quest for a heart. The sentiment of the card is inspired by the song "If I only had a Heart" sung by the Tin Man. I love the line: "I hear a beat, how sweet!" So this sentiment reads: "My heart beats for you, sweet!" I combined the silver elements from the Tin Man with the Ruby sequins of the Ruby red slippers that Dorothy wears. This card is super shiny and shimmery in real-life - it is so hard to photograph - but I tried.


One of the hearts is very 3-D and the silver heart is actually a broach that I cut and adhered to the cardstock. This is an early valentine's day card for my DH that I surprised him with this morning - with some hot cocoa and pancakes :) Pancakes, hot cocoa and the Wizard of Oz ... that's what I call a great start to a day! I used the sketch that my fellow PaperCraftPlanet DT member, Jessica from iEmbellish from Gina K. created for the Saturday Sketch going on at PaperCraftPlanet. This week, all those who participate in the sketch challenge at PaperCraftPlanet will be entered into a drawing for a free stamp set from Gina K. (valued at $19.95) in honor of celebrating Jessica's birthday!!!
