Cuttlebug Challenge #35

The challenge this week over at the cuttlebug challenge is MOVIE INSPIRED

and this week we are sponsored by http://vintageplum.com/

Pop over and see all the DT inspiration and get cracking with your movie inspired cards.



Now I really struggled with this one this week because my favourite movies are Horror movies like the Hellraiser films and the Alien films- except Winnona Ryder wasted the last one! and every time I tried to come up with a movie or a card all I could think of was the Alien bursting from John Hurt and the quote In Space no one can hear you scream!

I then tried to think of other movies I love like Dirty Dancing.... but again nothing came to me I was still seeing Aliens, I then thought of the Wizard of Oz and had a couple of ideas but nothing really happening

I then moved on to the old classics like Its a Wonderful life- a smashing film... but again nothing!

And of course you can't beat the old weepies like Imitation of Life, Madam X and i even thought of the old Veronica Lake movie I Married A Witch- which is a fab black and white movie

BUT again nothing coming to me and time was running out the clock was ticking and i had to get one done and then as i was in the queue at a dog show waiting to work Misty on Sunday it came to me

(not the ideal place to get some inspiration as i am supposed to be concentrating on my dog and not cards!)

So I settled for My Fair Lady- a lovely movie with Audrey Hepburn and isn't she the most delicate and pretty looking

So there I am at my dog competition and all I can think of is when she is at the horse racing and shouts " Move your bleeding ar*e" at the horse and when she is running through her vowels time and time again with her cockney accent

So this is my long deliberated after card based on MY FAIR LADY


I used the Stylized Flowers flower on the base card and the sentiment and added the flowers to symbolise that she started off as a flower seller

Whew, bit of a story there and bet your glad I got that off my chest

Looking forward to visiting to see your movie inspired cards
