Cinema Saturday Challenge: Father of the Bride

Hi ya friends!
I'm so glad you're here :) Today, Amy & I get to reveal this week's movie as guest designers for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! This week's flick is...
Your challenge, should you accept it, is to create with "something blue" from the wedding adage "something old, something new, something borrowed, something BLUE."

I had not seen this movie so I rented it & had such a blast watching it! Steve Martin is hilarious!!! I think I could mute the movie & just watch his facial expressions & crack up! The whole cast is great :) One of my favorite scenes was when they were at the dinner table when she's telling them she's getting married & George just sees his "little 6 year old girl" telling him she's getting married! Aww, I think that's exactly how dads really must feel :) (Hee! Hee!)

Anyhoo, on to my card...
Here's the cover:
I used a soft blue. I cut out the main image from the Love Struck Cricut cart. The ribbon works as the closure.

Open the card & this pops up:
A big ol' engagement ring! 
Modeled after the size of my own ring (if viewed with a microscope) just kidding ;)

Here are a few more peeks of it:
I used the Sizzix 3D Ball die for the diamond (I told you I wasn't done with it ;)
and cut the ball in Shimmer White CS. I had originally done it in vellum, but it did not hold up well :(  For the gold band, I simply cut a strip of Shimmer Gold CS & tucked the ends under the pattern paper leaving it so that it loosely sat above it (for even more dimension.) I cut out the Congrats with the Gypsy Wanderings (minus the star) & sprinkled some flowers around. The beautiful papers come from the Linen Closet collection from DCWV (my most fav DCWV stack evah!)

So that's it! Hope you're inspired to play along :) You've got til Thursday night to get your creations in. If you haven't seen Father of the Bride, be sure to treat yourself to it! It's loads of laughs!
Thanks for popping in!
Gotta Go!
