Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #45 - Sixteen Candles

Good Morning Everyone!!!! 

I am psyched to bring you the 45th Challenge from Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!!!! woo-hoo!!! Every Saturday we pick a movie from which to draw our inspiration from in creating a card, scrapbook layout, altered item etc. and this week's movie that we are featuring is the 80's classic movie: Sixteen Candles in honor of legendary director John Hughes who passed away at the age of only 59 last week. Joh  Hughes was also the director of 80's cult classics such as: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science and Planes.Trains and Automobiles among others. This movie is a coming of age kind of story about the sixteenth birthday of the the character Molly Ringwald plays and also brings out highschool politics - highschool crushes - and all the highschool drama - along with a ton of hip 80's fashiion! Gotta love it!!!

Our challenge this week is to creat
e a birthday card with colors from the 80's!!!! 
How fun is that!!!!
 Here is an example of 80's COLORS

Okay - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie - partly because I thought that the character of Jake Ryan was dreamy (did you know that the actor who played Jake Ryan, Michael Schoeffling now owns a woodmaking shop and creates handcrafted items!!!) and the other part because the very last scene still gives me tingles.... you know the scene where they lean into each other over a bday cake!  Well - for this challenge requirement - I wanted to do something FUN and 80's retro ish - and create a bday card with those fun and bright colors in mind. While I was blogging last night - I came across the store the Curiosity Shoppe thanks to SmilynStef's great inspiration challenge - and was simply tickled when I saw this picture in their store - it just looked like 80's colors to me - and so I used it as my inspiration for my Sixteen Candles 80's birthday card: The top right box reminds me of Molly Ringwald's hats in the movie.... wow - watching the movie and seeing all that 80's fashion is hilarious!!! I remember thinking HOW cool all of that was !!! lol!!!! Here is my card for the movie:
