IAAS - Choose a Movie

I set the theme of 'Choose a Movie' over at International Art and Soul so please come and join us.

After choosing the theme a few weeks previously I was stumped as to which movie to choose. I looked through my images and a few movies eventually popped into my mind but I still couldn't settle on one. I left my craft room and went downstairs to think and an idea came straight into my head. I'd been looking through family photos and liked this one of me and one of my sisters. Lorna died in November and I decided to make this card showing a photo of us, me at 9 and Lorna at 12, best buddies. 

The Way We Were.

The card blank is 7x7 by Craft UK.  The background paper is from Paper Cellar and I matted it on to pink card by Papermill. After printing the photo I matted it on to pink card and set it at an angle to the top left of the mat. I added two Memory Box dies of hanging flowers, again in pink card, to the right. The film title was generated on the computer, printed in pink and matted on the pink card. A small Spellbinder die of a butterfly was added to the small plaque and to finish off the design I added a strip of ribbon gems to the bottom edge. I bought this ribbon in America a few years ago and it's lasted for ages.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

IAAS - Cat or Dog

Happy New Year to you all. Please start the new year by joining us at International Art and Soul with our theme of 'Cat or Dog'. It was Jane's choice and a good one.

I used an 8x8 Craft UK card blank. The brick patterned paper is by Joanna Sheen and I matted it on to dark brown card by Papermill. The image is by Bugaboo and I coloured it with my Promarkers before cutting with a Spellbinder die. Pearls by Mei Flower were added to the collar as studs and two 'diamonds' again by Mei Flower were added as glints in her eyes. I used Distress Ink in Barn Door colour to smudge the edges before setting to the right of the card. The panel to the left is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder that I've had for years. I'd cut the panel with another Spellbinder die and after embossing I used brown Distress Ink to smudge the letters so that they would stand out better.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
