And we're back!

From another impromtu break in blogging! I just can't consistently get back into the swing of it, though it helps if you have something to share! We are also back to Cinema Saturday challenges. This first challenge in 2010 is The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. As many of you may expect, I quite like this movie. We have it on dvd, but I couldn't for the life of me find it to rewatch before making my card... so I just based a card on a costume. On the off-chance that there is someone reading who hasn't read the books or seen the movie, I won't spoil you by mentioning the scene, but I will tell you this card is based on an outfit that Lucy wears. I'm not entirely happy with how it turned out but I thought I would share it with you anyway... you gt a sneaky peak at an up-coming SAB set!

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, brushed gold
Stamp sets: Friends 24-7, Framed With Love, Vintage Labels
Ink: VersaMark, silver, Ruby Red (for brayering)

Love this Carol! I really like the ribbon paired with the slides and pearls -wow!
Btw saw Star Trek the other day, when I found out McCoy was Karl Urban, I thought of you. :)

OMGOSH NANCY!!! I thought the same thing!!! I just saw Star Trek and didn't know that Karl Urban had a role in that movie - but as soon as I saw him - I immediately thought of you and then heard the Rohan song in my head!!! lol!!! THank you so much for playing along Carol- your card is gorgeous and that ribbon treatment is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!

Sending you big hugs!!!
Sankari :)

This is beautiful, the pearl details are ... well beautiful. (sorry, haven't had coffee yet & vocab isn't quite there).

I have to laugh at what NancyK said, it's true, when I went to the theatres to see Star Trek & Karl Urban came on screen (after I sighed at his cuteness) I thought of him holding your creation from September.
