Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge and Jen's SFYTT

Good morning! I'm posting early today as there are a few challenges I need to link to today. This card is for Jen's Sketch For You to TRY and Cinema Saturday. I was guest designer there for my first post! The movie is "The Thief Lord." I haven't seen it but it's about a relationship between brothers. The requirement is to make a card for a friend or sibling. So I thought I'd use Jen's great sketch and make a card for my big sister's birthday next week. She's mom to my niece who made my fab blog banner :) I am using some new paper I found on my road trip last weekend. I only bought one piece! I'm trying to not buy so much paper before I use it up. But I LOVE this dp. I've used it on 4 cards this week! I looks perfect with vanilla and kraft. I also am using SU's blush blossom. I haven't used that one for awhile. AND I finally figured out how to tie a nearly perfect bow the first time out...not just hope for the best and have to redo it 20 times. This card has a very French feel...I may need to go on another road trip and get some more of this paper! Have a great day!

What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Kindred Spirits, Because of You; PTI fancy flourishes, SU french script (on flowers)
Paper: SU blush blossom, vanilla, kraft, choc chip, pomegranate; DCWV dp

Ink: versamark, SU choc chip, regal rose

Accessories: cuttlebug flower dies, button, linen thread, satin ribbon, EK border punch, pearls

That dp really enhances the demask and swirl stamping. I'm hoping to get a few ladies together for paper swapping and such. Even if it's just scraps...then everybody gets to be inspired by something new without the extra cost and nothing goes to waste.
