Good Morning! And a happy ground hog day. I heard that we are meant to get six more weeks of winter but I think that's wishful thinking for the approaching Olympics. We've been hit with a whole lot of rain in BC so it's hard to believe we'll be having more winter when we are experiencing April Showers.
Anyhow, here's the card a came up with for my Cinema Saturday entry. Not only did I get wonderful inspiration from this weeks movie "Titanic" but I also had an original sketch from Card Patterns and the love of my life for inspiration. Shortly after Valentine's day is our wedding anniversary which works out rather well as roses are so much cheaper and reservations at restaurants are much easier to make ;)
I printed off a candid photo of us on our wedding day for this project and incorporated both blue and silver. It's not the best picture but it's not posed either which is the feeling I wanted for the card. I also liked the fact that we made up our own heart with our linked hands. (You could superimpose a heart between us.) The sentiment comes from the popular ballad "My Heart Will Go On" sung by the queen of ballads herself, Celine Dion. I had the song rolling in my head days after watching the trailer. I chose that particular sentence because years from now we can look back at our day and just remember how happy and in love we were and can remind us even when things are rough that those feelings are still very much there.
I used the PTI truthful sentiment "You are a Blessing to Me", another small picture of us and more hearts to decorate the inside. I tried not to make the card to frou frou since I will be giving it to my husband, but it still needed to be romantic. I'm still not sure if I like the ribbon and hearts but I needed something appropriate to cover up a flaw in the printed picture.
I'll be making something similar to this for my in-laws wedding anniversary which is at the end of the week. They don't really care much for cards but maybe if I have a picture of them they may appreciate it more. Hope you're having a wonderful week and enjoying your blessings.
