The Outlawz: Movie Night!

I've got a dream too, but it's about singing and dancing and making people happy. That's the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. --- Kermit The Frog 

Good morning my crafty peeps! 
A new day - A new CAS challenge at the Outlawz. and it's MOVIE NIGHT!

We all have those absolute favorite movies. You know the one I'm talking about ... we can watch them over and over .... and over. We laugh, we get mad, we cry and sigh ... always at the same places. They bring back memories and smiles no matter how messed up our day has been!



Released in 1954 (quite a few years before I was born - ahem) I remember watching this movie every time it was on the Saturday afternoon matinee on TV!

I would leave my friends house to make it home in time to watch this one!

Such a fun movie full of singing and dancing. I remember laughing as I watched poor Milly copes with a new husband and 6 outrageous brother-in-laws. She proves herself to be no push over either even though she is outnumbered and out-sized by all that testosterone!

I never get tired of watching it even to this day.

So ... here is the card I made based on my favorite movie, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Spoiler alert!
It's a wedding card ...
LOL

Card size is 5 x 7
I made the sides of "film strip" with a small border punch I have. I stamped my image 8 times ... one to color and 7 times (get it?) to cut in 1"x 1" squares to look like film clips. I colored the main image with my Prisma color pencils and a alcohol blender pen and added liquid pearls to the frame for accents and attached to the card with foam dimensionals. The dress I painted with Smooch to give it a nice glimmer but try as I might I just could not get a good picture of it so you'll just have to take my word for it!

Supply List
Card stock from The Paper Studio and Stampin Up!
Image & Sentiment: "Wedding Bliss" from Hampton Art
Black India Ink from Memories
Prisma Color pencils
Liquid Pearls from Ranger
Smooch Pearlized Top Coat from Clearsnap
Border Bunch from Punch Bunch
Foam dimensionals

Looking forward to seeing what your favorite movie is!
