Cinema Saturday with Gina K. Designs

sparkly dress

I can hardly believe there is a challenge blog out there I’ve known about for quite a few months and have never participated in.  In addition to that, it’s all about being inspired by movies to create a card or project and I LOVE watching movies!!  And, it is run by one of my favorite fellow design team members, Sankari Wegman who I just adore. Lastly, it’s been almost a YEAR her & her friend Brooke have been bringing blogland the challenges because this week it’s the 50th challenge!  Well, Gina K. Designs is sponsoring the giveaway and I thought it was a great time to take the plunge & play along!  The movie this week is Pretty Woman, which I really loved and cannot recall how many times I watched it (I know it was at least 3).  

I chose (just like  lot of others) to use Retro Boutique illustrated by Rupa for Gina K. Designs.  I find it fascinating how clothes can really change someone’s attitude.  I love all the fun she had while shopping in the snooty boutique after he set the snooty women straight.  Well, as much as I loved the story, the happy ending and such – the movie just left me wanting more and was sadly disappointed there was no sequel to the movie.  So my card was inspired by what I would have liked to see happen – I wanted to see them get married so I created a beautiful, sparkly white gown.  One of the requirements for this challenge is to paper-piece and I did that but it’s hard to tell.  I paper-pieced her dress but with white cardstock so it can be more sturdy after I put stardust stickles on it.  It’s o.k. though, as part of GKD design team, I’m not eligible to win the prize – I’m just playing for fun!  I also combined this challenge with a few Clean and Simple challenges, which I am behind on: CAS32 (wedding card) and CAS33 (sketch).  I added some real stitching since I got a new Janome Sew Mini last week (fun!).  The pattern paper is Basic Grey Sultry and the embellishments are bling & dazzle sateen flowers with flower rhinestone centers. 

I hope you will have time to play along – Gina is giving away a prize package worth over $60!   Have fun!!

Before you leave, in case you missed the BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS on Gina K.’s Blog yesterday – we welcomed the new CSS design team & a new member to the Sr. Design Team!!
