Beauty & the Beast!

This is going to be my first time participating in Cinema Saturday! I think their challenges intimidate me. But this week, the challenge was Beauty & the Beast. It's one of my daughter's favorites (mine too...shhhhhh!) so I know the movie well - made it much easier when planning the card in my head!




Here's my challenge list:
  • Cinema Saturday - Beauty & the Beast - you can't have Beauty & the Beast without the rose and I grabbed my French Script embossing folder to go with it. The stamp is Verve (always my favorite sentiments) and this is from the Fairy Tales set - I was thinking it was appropriate!
  • Color Chef - Black, white and a "punch" of color - I obviously chose red
  • The Cuttlebug Spot asked for an anniversary card. With a front sentiment of Happily Ever After, I am thinking this could easily be either a wedding or anniversary card.
  • If the Shoe Fits also asked for an anniversary card.
  • ABC Challenge asked for Roses!
I am hoping to have one more card for you today! It's Sunday and the Nascar race is on this afternoon! Might be proactive and maybe color some images while watching the race - we will see - as most of you may know, I really don't consider myself a stamper - but I try!

The rose really ties it all together and they are really neat. I love all the detail you put into the card with the sentiment, embossing texture, and the roses. Good job on so many challenges wrapped up in one!
