As with all the Cinema Saturday Challenges it really gets me thinking about the movie and how I want to represent it in my creative work. A Knight's Tale is meant to be about "changing your stars" but can stars really be changed? Two men can be given the same opportunities but each of them may achieve different goals depending on the desires of their hearts. William became a Knight because of the heart in which he played his stars. There is a point in the movie while the men are falling asleep in their tent and William is telling them that Jocelyn has stolen his heart. His friend, Roland (the big guy), says "Without your heart you cannot win." It was this tiny sentence that inspired me to create my own sentiment. "Luck may be written in the stars, but victory is realized with your heart." I don't have much of a talent for writing so it may not be as poetic as Shakespeare or Chaucer but it was exactly what I wanted to say.
The rest of the card was worked around my quote and Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch (It was exactly what I needed, Thanks Karen!)
I decided on greens and neutrals that were present in many of the cosutmes. Remember Roland describing Williams outfit for the ball to Jocelyn's Maid? Green, trimmed with lighter green, and embellished with wood toggles? That's why I had to add the wood button. It represents William's more humble beginnings. I've got the hearts and stars working together along with the four leaf clover in the center for luck. I also added gold stitching around the main panel and I added linen thread wrapped around the brown scallop circle for something a little different.
Anyhow thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I didn't bore you too much with my written ramblings. Have a wonderful week (what's left of it).
PS. My favourite character in this movie was actually Geoffrey Chaucer well played by actor Paul Bettany.
