Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #96 - Ironman

Welcome to the 96th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, where every Saturday, we pick a movie from which we create a card from. This week we are featuring the 2 time Oscar nominated 2008 movie: IronMan starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges, and Terence Howard. This movie is based on the Marvel Comic books character Ironman and is about a wealthy industrialist who builds a powerful "ironman" suit and becomes powerful superhero. This movie was hugely successful after its release and Downey was praised for his acting and his role as a superhero, which prompted the release of Ironman 2. For this challenge we thought it would be fun for the challenge to be to use something with Metal in your creations (a little bit of metal or alot of metal: this can be from sheets of aluminum, brads, bling, eyelets, metallic paper or ribbon etc.)

I remember watching this movie and thinking that Robert Downey Jr. totally rocked the role of this Marvel comic book character Ironman - he was so good at the "dry" humor and more than anything, it was good to see him comeback from all the hard things he has gone through in his life. In creating this card, I thought I would make something inspired by Pepper Potts and IronMan - that they both say how they other is "all they have" - and so I thought I would make a little love card inspired by the "heart ring" that he has to wear in his heart. This is what it looks like:
and so I created my card inspired by that design and in the center of the heart I put a little flower inspired by the flowering love between Potts and Tony. The sentiment reads: "It's always been you":
The center of the flower has metal and both the black and gray are metallic sheets. It was fun to create a love card inspired by the movie. The girls over at the Cinema Saturday Blog have created some SUPER cute cards inspired by this movie! Hop on over and check them out - and then play along with us!!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a chance to play along with us and have great weekend!
