Cinema Saturday Challenge - Australia

Hi. Today is the beginning of Challenge # 63 at Cinema Saturday. The featured movie this week is Australia. It's a nod to our Aussie friends who take delight in guessing the movie from the sneak peeks on Fridays and then come up with some really creative cards. So Happy Australia Day to all of you!

I had the extreme pleasure to be a guest designer this week for this challenge. It was so much fun and I want to again thank Brooke and Sankari for welcoming me in. I love this challenge because you can use any form of media to create your card, so it allows me to dig into my vast stamp collection. Also, you can use anything from the movie that inspires you to represent the movie on your card. If you haven't taken part in a challenge before, you should check it out and have some fun.

The movie starred Nichole Kidman and Hugh Jackman (ahhh) two Aussies themselves. I chose to highlight the romance between them. Lady Sarah was rich, beautiful and stylish upon coming to Australia. Drover was rough and tumble (and extremely handsome). The stamp image I used is by PostModern Design. I used this image because if you have seen the movie, when he walks in with that white tux, clean shaven, well you know!!! I used decorated Kraft paper as the base for my card and added lacey kraft on the left to represent Lady Sarah and rope edged kraft to the right to represent the cowboy in Drover. The sentiment is from Cloud 9 Simple Thoughts-Love, and it fit perfectly with what I was trying to portray with this card.

Hope you have a great Saturday. Thanks for stopping by. Until later............

Well, I have not seen the movie, but I know I've got Aussie fever!! Hugh Jackman, hubba hubba, and Nicole Kidman is my hubby's hubba hubba, lol, I will take Hugh rough and tumble though, love me a scruffy fella. Soooooooo, enough of that glimpse into the oddity that is me....
Fabulous card!! The papers and kraft and distressing are fabulous and I am pretty sure you have picked the perfect stamp for the feeling of the movie that you were wanting to encompass, beautiful work friend, and huge congratulations on your guest spot!!!

I love how you captured the movie in this card, Sue! Hugh Jackman was SO dreamy all through the movie especially in the white tux! I love how you achieved the ruggedness of this movie in the rope and background! You did an awesome job with a Guest Designer (I knew you would!)
