Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #20- The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons

Nominated for 13 academy awards here is a full list of all nomination for this movie USA and internationally.

When Sankari and I talked about making cards for this movie Vintage was the first thing that came to mind. The movie has amazing depth and color. It also covers such a long time period. At the beginning of this movie the story of a clock and a clock maker is a huge part of how Benjamin Button came about. Sankari and I thought about all the different elements of the movie and we both settled on Clock ironically. You can view her amazing clock inspired card here. You can also come on over to Cinema Saturday and read a little more about the movie.

I am really loving clock stamps right know and can't wait to order a new time piece that is coming up in March from Stampin' Up.  Clock make great classic stamp set because we all have "TIME" weather is not enough or to much time..
