Oh Mr. Darcy...

Cinema Saturday is celebrating their 100th challenge! That's right, the oh-so creative Brooke & Sankari have given us 100 cinema-tastic challenges of creativity -come celebrate here.
They let their fans vote on the movie for the 100th challenge, and the vote brought them full circle: from the 1st challenge to the 100th challenge, Pride and Predjudice was the flick of the week:

I chose to re-watch the 2005 film version (you can check out the movie details here).
I knew I needed to use lace, and I watched the film looking for a perfect quote to use, however, it was Jane's ball gowns that caught my eye. They were just beautiful with the flowy folds, just a hint of color, and not flashy -just sweet. These were my inspirations for my card.
I used Blushing Bride (so Jane-appropriate), for my underlying color/card-base, a little gathered lace -slightly frayed on the edges to show the well-loved, comfortable quality of the Bennet family, and a little heart tag -a token of affection if you will. :) I also stamped a floral pattern in the background, and used folded tissue paper to get the effect of Jane's dress, shown above.


  1. This does look just like Jane's dress! Beautiful card!

  2. Soft and beautiful (truly Jane-inspired)! Love the feminine touch in this card!
