Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #93 - Annie

Welcome everyone to our 93rd Cinema Challenge - where every week we create a card inspired by a different movie, and this week we are featuring the movie: Annie! This broadway musical turned movie was based on the comic strip of the adventures of Orphan Annie and was nominated for two Oscars. The songs in this movie have continued in popularity as numerous of schools and production companies continue to perform their own Annie musical. For our challenge requirement, we went with the obvious :), to use some red accents (it can be a little or a whole lot!!!) that is inspired by some part of the movie!

I remember watching this movie way back when and always remembering that "the sun will come out tomorrow" and that always made me feel good - that no matter HOW hard (or maybe I should say, how "hard-knocked" ;) your day was, there is always tomorrow! So I thought I would create that very sentimented card with a little red Annie dress (cut out of felt) and create a simple little card that you can give to someone if they are having a rough day.

I love all the fonts that JustRite stamps has, that allows you to create your own sentiments - so I pulled out my Curlz 95 point Upper and Lowercase font set to create the sentiment: "there's always tomorrow". I created the dress by drawing it and then cutting it out on felt and then piecing it all together:

Here is a close up of the dress and sentiment:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket: Togetherness and PTI cardstock
Ink: Memento Dandelion, Cantaloupe and Tuxedo Ink Black
Accessories: border die and felt from MFT, spellbinders, black sakura glaze pen, white dew drops and the dress was hand drawn and then cut out of felt and put up on dimensionals.

Who is your favorite character from the movie? It used to be Annie and Miss Hannigan used to scare me - she seemed so mean. Well, watching it while making this card, I actually grew very fond of Carol Burnett's characterization of Miss Hannigan - seriously - she is hilarious (and still mean) but somehow watching this movie now makes me have a special fondness for Ms. Hannigan (she is so hilarious - Carol Burnett is a genius!).

I loved making this card - and anything to do with Annie always makes me feel happy and makes me look forward to tomorrow and all of its possibilities.I had so much fun playing along with this movie challenge - and singing along to the songs as I created my card. Hope that you have a chance to play along with us!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
