Saturday Cinema Creative Challenge #53/Elizabeth-The Golden Age

Henry VIII

I was chosen to be the guest designer over at Saturday Cinema Creative Challenges this week. For my designer spot, I had to create a card based on the movie "Elizabeth-The Golden Age." The added challenge was to have at least one crown on your project too. I can't tell you how much I "stressed" over this card. :) First the "pressure" of wanting it to be really good (you know if you are the "guest designer," it HAS to be GOOD. Wink!) :) Then the stress of coming up with something for this movie that would do it justice.

I remembered a stamp I purchased from Ebay a few years ago that was an Henry VIII image. Since Henry VIII was Elizabeth's father, why wouldn't that work? :) So then the wheels are turning....I could make a father type of card. I searched for a quote that I felt would be fitting the movie and found the one on the card. I thought it was perfect for Elizabeth. Without her father's protection, she probably would have been killed at a young age (since being Anne Boleyn's daughter was not a popular thing.) :) On my trip to Hobby Lobby last week, I found the crown stickers by EK Success and then I was on a roll. :)

Anyway here is the finished result. (My photo is not the greatest since it was cloudy yesterday and my husband has not finished that "promised" light box YET.") :)
The card is prettier in person (please take my word on that.) :)

Hope your weekend is going good. Looks like another rainy day in Alabama. Will be another fun card making day! :)

That is a perfect man card - they all seem to be legends in their own minds :-) Just kidding (mostly) - it's a wonderful card!
