Pretty Woman


Thanks to Gina K., I've found a new challenge blog that is really fun! It's Cinema Saturday and every week, they reveal a movie to use as the inspiration for the week. This week, the movie is Pretty Woman. How fun! Although, I've seen the movie many times, I went back and watched it again. It is such a modern day Cinderella story, it just made me feel happy watching it. The most inspiring part for me, is when Vivian tells Edward she wants the whole fairy tale. At this point, she sees her value, and her long forgotten dreams are rekindled. I hope that anyone who reads this blog and has lost hope of their dreams, realizes it is never too late! Don't give up!

I wanted this card to be elegant, so I used many rich textures. I love the SEI velvet papers, and I ran them through the cuttlebug with the Damask frame folder (In the movie, the wall of the hotel room had a gorgeous damask design on the wall). I oversprayed my quote - Once in a while Right in the middle of an ordinary life Love gives us a Fairytale, with tattered angels, Suede and Iridescent Gold. My dress and quote are from Sassy Studio Designs. I paper pieced the underskirt and sash, and ran the main body of the dress through my cuttlebug with the Swiss dots folder, then sanded the raised areas for the white dots. I added a border of antique lace to add to the textile qualities.

This was a really fun challenge to play, so go check it out!
