Cinema Saturday #37

Thank you to Brooke and Sankari for picking my sweet lollipop card for the “Some Like It Hot” Audrey! That’s exciting in itself, but it’s a bonus when it means you get to be the guest designer the next week. And how fun that it is High School Musical! With two young daughters in the house this has been a favourite around here, although I didn’t think I would like it. I was pleased to find that it was better than most of the Disney tv movies I have seen, so I didn’t mind revisiting it for the challenge. There were a lot of ways I could go with my card, but I felt that I had to have a lot of red and white, and I wanted my card to be a bit of a celebration of the individual.

I went with an age birthday card, using chipboard and punches for some stars and working in the number with a big glittery 7. In talking about it with Tiarna she had mentioned basketballs, so I decided to make orange a feature colour and threw in some blue for contrast. The 7 is from the Sticky Cuts Letters pack - this was the first time I had used them (finally!) and I think it is great, very easy to use. I stuck the 7 to some Whisper White and then trimmed around it before covering it in the orange Supernova glitter. To balance all the orange on the right I wanted to use some of the glitter on the left, so the two small brads have been covered with a mini glue dot and dipped in the glitter, while the large brad (from the Styled Silver hodgepodge) has had a scrap of the Sticky Cuts trimmed to size and stuck on top before dipping in the glitter. The white gel pen dots on the punched stars were inspired by the title on the disc cover, and it also carries over the look of the DSP on the chipboard.

Hope you all have fun with this challenge, I can’t wait to check out your entries!
