Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 9 - The Sound of Music

Hi Everyone! Whoohoo! I created a card for Sankari and Brooke's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #9 - The Sound of Music!! I've been wanting to play since they started their challenge blog! Well, I finally stuck to the plan and created this card. Sankari will be proud of me! LOL!

I posted my card on this blog site rather on Stampin Inspirations because there is absolutely no rubber stamping on this card. I had computer generated the sentiment and the dresses are scrapbook embellishments by Jolee's by You.

This week's challenge is to create a card based on the movie "The Sound of Music". Oooh, one of my favorite movies. I don't like to watch a movie more than once but "The Sound of Music" is an exception. I think I've watched this movie at least once every year since I first saw it as a child. Really! I guess because well, it's one of those movies that is shown on TV every year and we also have the DVD.

Although I love all the songs in the movie, one of my favorite is "So Long, Farewell" so my sentiment on my card is based on that song. It has sad undertone to the song but there's a sense of innocence to it from a child's point of view. I also love the song "Edelweiss". . .both sad but beautiful songs.

I created this card with the dresses because I really loved the pretty dresses that Maria and the girls wore and the dresses on my card reminded me of them. I wanted the card to be somewhat elegant so I kept the design colors at a minimal.

I would have preferred a different colored dress or color combo but these dress embellishments were the only ones I had.

Anyway. . .be sure to stop by and check out the challenges! They are really fun!!

Card Details:

Papers: SU Lovely Lilac (I think), Orchid Opulence, Glossy White Cardstock
Accessories; Jolee's By You scrapbook embellishments, Satin ribbon, Silver Metallic Cord, Blue Moon metal charm, SU Ticket Corner Punch, CB embossing folders
