hello... you must allow me...

Hello friends!!  Happy Saturday... can't believe I already have my Less is More card done and not only that I actually have TWO cards for the challenge!!  Woo hoo!!   This week is one layer week and Chrissie and Jen have asked us to base our cards on a favorite movie.  For my first card it was an absolute "no brainer".  My all time most favorite movie is the A&E (back in the day when A&E still meant "Arts & Entertainment"...now they mostly produce weird reality shows!) version of Pride & Prejudice.  Not only does it have beautiful costuming, scenery and fabulous acting, it has COLIN FIRTH in it!!  Seriously I could just watch that man all day long!  All.Day.Long!!   Anywhoo... about my card...


Because I love Pride & Prejudice so much when PTI came out with the set Simply Jane I HAD to purchase it... no question.  For my card I inked up the image using Memento Summer Sky for Mr. Darcy and Memento Angel Pink for Lizzie and then stamped them in the bottom right corner of my card.  The sentiment (from the scene where Mr. Darcy simultaneously expresses his love for Lizzie and insults her!) was stamped to slightly overlap onto Mr. Darcy.  I added a few sequins because they are relatively flat... hope Chrissie doesn't mind!  (With the addition of the sequins you could almost stretch this card to cover another of my favorite movies... How to Marry a Millionaire.  Mr. Darcy was quite rich you know, lol!)


The second card is based on the Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks movie "You've Got Mail".  It isn't exactly a favorite movie but I did enjoy watching it and I have this cute little mailbox stamp that I got from Stampotique that was perfect for this challenge.  I stamped it in Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  PTI and Stampotique; Ink:  Memento; Copic makers; sequins

Couldn't agree more about P&P and Colin Firth (phwoar) as Mr Darcy. A lovely card and with that fantastic quote too.

I adore that PTI set-but never justified buying it! You've used it absolutely beautifully. Great second card too for one of my fav films.

Brilliant depiction of the film Rosie and the best Mr Darcy ever!! I'm still trying to think what too do for this one. I met up with Chrissie yesterday and she reckons it was Jen's choice of theme as she, herself struggled:)
Love the mailbox card too.
