Good morning! Today's card is for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. I love it when I've already seen the movie...it makes it easier to get the feel of the movie and increases the inspiration for the card. The movie this week is "Field of Dreams." I've seen this movie several times over the years. I love James Earl Jones' big booming voice. The requirement this week is to use red stitching (from a baseball, I'm assuming). The sentiment that popped into my head right away is from PTI's heart prints sentiments. I think it's perfect for this movie. I had to think about how to add red stitching...I didn't want to do it by hand (lazy?) but didn't have a whole spool or bobbin of red thread. I did, however, have a little sample spool so I loaded it on the machine, kept the cream thread on the bobbin, and did some sample stitching to see how it would turn out. Just the red showed...so I stitched the sentiment onto the card...voila, red stitching!! The layout is simple and I chose a different colour combo to complement the red stitching. I wanted the flower to look like a poppy. The layers are actually stamped with a French Script and polka dot stamps, but you can't tell in the photos. The polka dots are stamped in versamark. Have a wonderful Wednesday :)
