Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #58 - Roman Holiday

Good Morning Everyone,

Today is Saturday, which means that it is time for another Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, where I am SOOOO excited because this week, we are featuring one of my FAVORITE movies: the 3 time Oscar winning movie: Roman Holiday - starring two of my FAVORTIE actress in the whole world - the one and only: Audrey Hepburn who stars with Gregory Peck who is one of my FAVORITE actors in the whole world (but of course - you KNOW that Johnny Depp - will always be #1!!!!) ---- can you tell that I LOVE this movie!!!??!!! I don't know what it is about Audrey - but she just makes me smile - and so I had SOOO much fun making cards for this movie!!! I couldn't stop at one - I actually made two! THe challenge requirement this week was to use pearls - (that could mean liquid pearls, pearl bling, pearl brads - etc.)

Card #1 - The VESPA inspired card :)

My first card is inspired by the scene where Audrey and Gregory take a ride around Rome in the Vespa scene - I LOVE this scene because of the pure happiness on Audrey's face as she lets down her "princess" role and becomes just a "girl" for the day - Isn't this picture of pure happiness on her face - just the loveliest!!!!

And I a-d-o-r-e this picture of Gregory Peck and Audrey holding each other - SOOO sweet:

I used the Mojo Sketch #112 from the awesome Juleeeee Tilman - I love this sketch and I couldn't wait to use Julee's beautiful stamp set: Wishing You for this card - and choose to pair the "Wishing you" part of the sentiment with the sentiment: "a day filled with happiness" - because it just perfectly captures the feeling of the beautiful day that Audrey and Gregory Peck spend together - my favorite scene is the "Mouth of Truth" scene - soooo cute! I loved the Vespa scene - I downloaded this Vespa image and then I matted it and added dimensionals to give it some pop :) Here is my card inspired by all of those elements:

I made the embellishment on the ribbon by punching out a mini circle in black cardstock and then adhering some pearls on it and then in the center - I put some turquoise bling and then on the sides I added some liquid pearls (in green) - it was a fun way to give the ribbon a little "pop" :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: black cardstock from stash, green prism cardstock, turquoise cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: liquid pearls, pearl accents, blue accordian ribbon, corner chomper, Sakura pen black glaze, dimensionals, Vespa image downloaded: , circle punch

I absolutely loved making this card as I watched the movie - and couldn't wait to make another one:

Card #2 - "Let Your Light Shine" :)

For my second card - I used Lori's sketch from PaperCraft Planet (please use tag: Sk111409 (which is today's date) to upload). As much as I loved seeing Audrey as a princess at the end - (because she truly is a princess in my eyes - no one has her grace - and no one makes a crown and bling look SOOO good!) but more than seeing her loveliness as a princess - I loved seeing her let down her hair and not be bounded by all the rules of being a princess - and so this next card is inspired by the way Princess Anne let's her inner light "shine" and I used Julee's beautiful stamp set: StarStruck from Verve (and just a sidenote: my card started like the sketch - but then it kinda became something a little different... :) I had so much fun making this card (I loved making this card while scrapping with Michelle over at From the Heart! ;) and was inspired to use Tiffany blue by Maureen and had to add a little yellow to bring some shine :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: black cardstock, Black and White DP from Bo Bunny, turquoise cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: pearl accents, organdy ribbon, corner chomper, 2 1/8 circle punch and scallop punch, dimensionals

I love this movie and hope that you have a chance to play along! There are so many parts of this movie that can create inspiration for a card for you - from the costumes, to the dialogue, sets, characters, events, etc.!

Sankari :)
