I haven't participated in the monthly Dirty Dozen Alumni Challenge in ages. I was able to combine challenges, so I thought I would play along. I have wanted to make a card for the CinemaSaturdayCreativeChallenge all week and haven't got a chance. This week's movie is "Emma"; one of my all-time favorites. I love everything about it from the clothes, hair, actress/actors, story, so on and so on. I thought the sentiment "Lucky in Love" worked well for this movie also, because although there are many set backs, everyone ends up "Lucky In Love". So....this is my Emma/DDA challenge card. The challenge for the DDA was to use "Luck" and fancy folds. I chose not to fold my card fancy, but instead added an accordian folded flower to my card.
I printed the xoxo and Lucky in Love from my computer. I then stamped around the images using my beloved DesignElements stamp set from TJ Designs. This is one of those "must have/go to" sets that should be on every stampers shelf, especially if you love vintage creations as much as I do. I knew I wanted to keep the card black and cream and then add a pop of color with the ribbon. I used some great paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby a while ago from The Paper Studio. One of the patterns is a Toile pattern which I love and reminded me of the picnic that Emma and her friends attend when she is really mean to Miss Bates! Poor Miss Bates!
In keeping with the "luck" theme, I added a few of my Vintage Playing cards that I picked up a few years ago. You can't see the fabulous Vintage images on them, but I have used them in other designs and they are a delight. I purchased the bird punch from Wal-Mart the other day and thought that a pair of them would be perfect for this design. Of course I added a sugar coating of black chunky glitter. I had fun with this design. I think this one will adorn one of the shelves in my stamp area. Thanks for fluttering by!
