"My Fair Lady"


I simply love Audry Hepburn! So when I stumbled across this challenge, I thought I just had to try it! And yes, again with the pearls! But everyone should have at least one set of nice pearls lol~
Here is a link if you are interested in playing along or simply checking out everyone's cards for inspiration! http://cinemasaturdaycreativechallenge.blogspot.com/lenge.blogspot.com/

When I think of Hepburn and My Fair Lady, I think of pink, of course, black, beautiful architecture, spring time, and flowers. From the moment I saw this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted my card to look like and I am ever so pleased with the result! This is my first time making a card challenge for Cinema Saturday Creative and I cant wait to see what everyone else comes up with!



The pink paper I used has a strong scroll pattern embossed on it remind me of iron gates from long ago. And with embossing part of the challenge, it was a perfect choice. I have heat embossed SU!'s Print Pattern onto the black card and feel the layered textures work well with the layers of lace on Eliza's dress. For even more texture, and a bit of bling, I accented the embossed patterns with the pearls and added "Yes Dear..." from my printer framed with SU!'s Hodge Podge kit.
Just as My Fair Lady, and the leading lady Audrey Hepburn will never go out of style, nor will silhouettes! I picked up an open stock stamp from a bog box store, and I truly love it. I know I can use this stamp in many different applications and look forward to another challenge where I can try it out again.
I hope you have enjoyed this card as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you.

Winks & sweet wishes,

Christie
