Cinema Saturday #13

I've finally made myself get a Cinema Saturday challenge done! I've been following the blog since it's inception but have never managed to get a card made in time, even the week they did HP. But I felt I just had to do it this week when I guessed that the movie was Mama Mia! from the sneak peek (that still blows me away, because I talked myself out of it a number of times).

Anyway, I'll be honest and say I'm not that big on Abba... I heard them played so much when I was little it was like over-kill. But the movie is fun smile. My colour inspiration came the movie as a whole, the beautiful colours of the water, the colours of the house and the splash of red contrast is probably from Donna's bedspread... I think I was just looking for an excuse to use that ribbon again. The inspiration for the subject of my card comes from the second scene in the movie, where Sophie is telling her bridesmaids about finding her Mum's diary and the emphasis on the ellipsis "DOT DOT DOT" lol. Because of all the Abba I had to have a good dose of bling, and the final touch was the flowers in Sophie's hair for her wedding.

Hi Carol,

Love your groovy card!

I thought about using the dot, dot, dot theme too, but couldn't work out where to go with it. You've done a great job...and I like the other little touches like the flower from Sophie's hair and the red (also reminds me of the scarf Donna was waving about on her way up to the church).

See you in the comments section for the new sneak peek on Sat am? :-)
