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:

  4. Oh Hazel, this is so lovely, you made me cry. I had an older sister that I was very close to pass away 12 years ago. She was a kindergarten teacher and loved children. She has 7 grandchildren now . I often think of how proud she would be of all of them .

    I love the colors that you used , I love those pinks, grays and black.
