Cinema Saturday Challenge- Forrest Gump!

Hi friends,
I am this week's guest designer for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge Blog. This week's movie is...

The challenge requirement this week is to have something brown in your card - brown ribbon, brown paper, brown embellishments, brown ink.... anything... it can be a lot - it can be very little - but just something/anything brown .... that is inspired by the movie: Forrest Gump.

So here's what I have to temp you with:

A Box of Chocolates Card!

Card??? Uh, huh! Check this outThe top lifts to reveal the card part underneath. I would put a piece of acetate on the underside of the opening, but so you wouldn't get glare, I didn't add it. The inspiration for this project is that famous tag line from the movie "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get." and of course Forrest's box of chocolates. This was ridiculously easy to create and super quick- really!!! I used a shadow box card variation my blog pal Vicki (Sweet Dreamers) linked on her blog. There's a video tutorial to show you how to make it.

I'd like to thank the ladies at Cinema Saturday for letting me play along this week. It was great fun!
Thanks so much for peekin' today! I'm off to Sees for my quick fix of the good stuff---gotta go!

the 411:
Paper: Chocolate Chip CS- SU! Sweet Confections- Pinecone Press
Other: White gel pen
, ribbon, foam tape
