At The Movies!

I know-I know! A pretty wild card for me right? Although most of my cards are usually on the clean and simple side, I have had this card stuck in my head for months!  I have been sitting on this Art Impressions Girlfriends At The Movies stamp so I could make this special card for my longest time stamping and childhood friend Charla. I have to tell you she was the luckiest Gwamma of all on her birthday-she was given the gift of a new grandson! Oh such a special day it was!

Charla and I and several other movie buff friends meet once or twice a month to see a good chick flick-so this image really reminds me of her-of course she is the ring leader!

I had a heck of a time getting a pic of this card with everything all in focus because of the dimension...Thanks to my son for his help!

I colored this super image from the stamp set At the Movies.  It took me a while to find the exact cut files I wanted to use to embellish this card. I finally found the perfect set at Miss Kate's Cuttables-Movie Night.  I set it all up on charcoal grey cardstock and a stair step card file from the Silhouette Store. I parted with some of my new  festive Simple Stories "Say Cheese" paper too(I bought it at my LSS Urban Paper). YIKES I love that paper and that store!

On the back I stamped another sentiment that came with the set-
You're still the life of the party...even when we stay out past 8!
