Good Morning Everyone!! Every Saturday over at the Cinema Saturday blog (ps - I can't believe this is our 70th challenge already!) Brooke and I pick a movie from which to create a card! This week the movie that we picked is the little known gem: Dear Frankie! As much as we love the big blockbusters, we also love featuring movies that might not be that famous but are just amazing! If you haven't seen this movie - you MUST! It is just a gem of a movie! Seriously - this is one of the most heartwarming movies that we have both seen - you will fall in love with it! The challenge requirement for this movie is to use a little bit of a map is because that is how Frankie (the little boy) keeps track of his father's voyages. I can't express enough - how beautiful of a movie this is --- it is full of love stories (the love between a mother for her daughter, the fierce love of a mother for her child, the love that grows between two strangers and the love of a "father" for his son) - its just beautiful and I know you will love it!
For my card today, I used the sketch that the beautiful Susanna Boyd has created for Paper Craft Planet (keyword SK031310) andd used the lovely color challenge (with the requirement for cloth) from the uber fab Embellish magazine. I loved how these colors came together and I love how Frankie kept a map and tried to find his dad in everything through all of his journeys in the letters that he received. It was so sweet to see the way he tracked him and from that I came with the inspiration for this card of a trail of hearts over the Scottish seas (errr.... Lochs).
I used the Wood Stamper that is 2-3/8" which comes with a Bonus 25pt Font & Center to create the sentiment "I'd Follow You Anywhere" and I think that is one of the main reasons that I fell in love with the Just Rite stamp system is because I could create my own sentiments - gotta love that flexibility!... Frankie gets very attached to his "father" and it is just the sweetest thing to see the connection between those two! (Gerard Butler is in this movie (before he became super famous) and I adore the interaction between him and Frankie - so sweet! I remembered loving it the first time I saw it but honestly, after having children - it pulls at my heart strings even more - and I totally relate to how fiercely Lizzie protects her son Frankie and only wants the best for him. Seriously, even more in love with it :)
Paper: Prism cardstock in the colors: Intense Kiwi and Island Mist Dark and paper is from a map of Sweden that I printed out :)
Stamps: Just Rite Wood Stamper that is 2-3/8" which comes with a Bonus 25pt Font & Center
Inks: Memento Aquamarine and Chalkbox Yellow Ochre
Accessories: white gel pen, heart punch, buttons from Whirligig, MS heart punch, dimensionals, scorpal, spellbinders, kraft, ribbon from stash, felt accent.
The bond that Frankie has with his "dad" and the way he observes things and puts things together is beyond sweet... he would follow him anywhere. The challenge from Embellish called for cloth - my "cloth requirement" is the felt accent over the ribbon. I absoulutely loved this movie and highly recommend it! Hop on over to the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog to find out more details! We would love for you to play along!
