Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #26 "My Fair Lady"

This weeks card was inspired by the outfits as the Ascot as a starting point. I also have lots of hidden meaning through the card. All the formal blacks, grays and whites are so elegant. I added just a little flair of color to remember Eliza's presence at the ascot..

Just a little trivia:

The single most important costume ever created for a motion picture, Audrey Hepburn's Ascot Ascot (ăs`kət), town, Windsor and Maidenhead, S central England. The famous horse races instituted by Queen Anne in 1711 are held annually in June on Ascot Heath. Ascot remains an important social and fashion event, attended by the royal family. dress from "My Fair Lady," designed by Academy Award(R)-winner Cecil Beaton with an estimated value of US$100,000-$150,000;

I had a butterfly in my head from the start. Just imagine a homely little caterpillar that emerges into a beautiful butterfly. The songs are just so catchy you can't help but sing them aloud. How about:
With a little bit...with a little bit...
With a little bit of bloomin luck!
There is the
floral inspiration for my card.

You're not the "EMBOSS" of me... Eliza is reminding you to all to add
of embossing on your projects this week for our challenge.

Wouldn't it be Loverly...
(sentiment inspiration)

It's rather dull in town, I think I'll take me to Paree.
The mistress wants to open up
The castle in Capri.
Me doctor recommends a quiet summer by the sea!
Mmmm, Mmmm, wouldn't it be loverly?
Eliza All I want is a room somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air.
With one enormous chair,
Aow, wouldn't it be loverly?
Lots of choc'lates for me to eat,
Lots of coal makin' lots of 'eat.
Warm face, warm 'ands, warm feet,
Aow, wouldn't it be loverly?
Aow, so loverly sittin' abso-bloomin'-lutely still.
I would never budge 'till spring
Crept over me windowsill.
Someone's 'ead restin' on my knee,
Warm an' tender as 'e can be. 'ho takes good care of me,
Aow, wouldn't it be loverly?
Loverly, loverly, loverly, loverly

Don't forget the BLING!
Remember all the bling she wears at her final presentation/test. I used a Rhinestone brad to represent her bling.

Here is a great link for the Lyrics to "My Fair Lady"

I hope you enjoy the show.. I can't wait to see where you all get your inspiration..

Oh wow. What a gorgeous card and pretty pictures from the movie. I've never seen the movie but the black and white photo with the long dress is quite inspiring!
