Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #61 "A Knights Tale"

Inspiration words: Love, Patience, Passion, Determination, Romance.

Sketch inspiration:
Thanks to the fabulous Julee Tilman for helping me get inspired to create.. I have missed your challenges... You can join in the Mojo challenge here.

This picture is one of my inspiration starters for the challenge.. Just before the celebration banquet the Lady Jocelyn asked what color Sir Ulrich would be wearing so she could match him for the evening.. "Green" was the color determined so I decided to use green in the card. In a later scene after a disagreement William and Lady Jocelyn have a great distance between seeing each other about a months time. William's heart is softened and he can do nothing but think of her he is holding a red rose and sharing his broken heart with his mates. They all compose a love letter to the Lady Jocelyn.. When Jocelyn is reading the love letter she is holding that red rose... This rose is to let her know that he has remembered their earlier conversation about flowers and sticks... If you look really close the image of the lady has the title "Rose " over her as well. The Stars on the card are to represent the conversation he had with his father as a child and remembering that he can change the stars and create his own destiny... He wanted to some day become a knight and he was told he could not. But his father said he could change the starts if he put him mind to it. I also included a little sheet music on the card because the modern music twist it's one of the unique notes about this movie.. The metal sentiment and brads are inspired my the knights armor of course. I think the color, pattern paper and embellishments over all have a heavy medieval feel..

Here are the words of inspiration If you like to read more line to find inspiration for your self you can find them here on IMDB.com
Jocelyn: Sir Ulrick. What are you wearing to the ball tonight?
William: er... nothing...
Jocelyn: Well, we shall cause a sensation, for I shall dress to match.
William: [annoyed] Don't you ever get tired of putting clothes on?
Chaucer: [whispers] I think she's talking about taking them off, sir.
Jocelyn: A flower is only as good as its petals. Don't you agree?
William: A flower is good for nothing. You can't eat a flower, a flower can't keep your warm...
Jocelyn: And a rose never knocked a man off a horse either.
William: You're just a silly girl arn't you.
Jocelyn: Better a silly girl with a flower, than a silly man with a horse and a stick...
she walks away]
Wat: It's called a lance... hello...

My card will post tomorrow :) Thanks for your kind and comforting words about my mom...we're doing fine...it's sad, but then you hear about other's heartache that is so much more (with a sick child, spouse, etc)....my mom had a full life before the Alzheimers and did leave a lovely legacy in her children...I've so much to be thankful for :) It is weird, though...

Brooke, I have been trying to get over to your blog all week to take a close look at this fantastic card. So many details. The bird background paper is wonderful. And the sheet music is such a great touch. The small image reminds me of an engraving. The texture from the rope-like cloth and the metal words and brads add so much to your card. Your challenge is so thought provoking and allows everyone to interpret their card as they see it, which is very refreshing.
