Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #78 ~ Much Ado About Nothing

THIS MORNING I GOT A CONGRATS FROM MY SWEET FRIEND BUTTERNUT SAGE(DONNA)... I though what did I win? I didn't enter this cards in any challenge or contest hmm? Well guess what mystery solved!
I was
i-PICKED on week 78 from NANCY RYLIES weekly i-pick.
You can check out all here amazing cards picks here.
Doesn't this banner match my card so perfectly wink, wink...

When I think of Much Ado About Nothing I think of dancing and singing and merriment, heart break, scandal, sisterhood, brotherhood, wine, grapes, Italian countryside, natural colors, weddings, white blouses and music. I love the soundtrack from this movie. It's been years sense I have listened to it because it's on CASSETTE. LOL! When I was thinking about this card I knew I was going to keep it natural and simple. I wanted to bring in the windows and wooden beams so I choose to make a grind with Kraft paper. I used my Score-Pal to make the grid on the Kraft paper then used a sponge and ink to antique the paper. If you haven't used parchment I hope you are able to find some.. I love the feel of it. it's kind of a mix of card stock and vellum in texture and appearance. It looks really beautiful when you hold it up to the light. I found it at our local kraft store not expensive at all. I just had to add the little butterfly for the color and dimension not to mention how beautiful it is. Linen wine was a perfect addition to the natural theme.. I so wish that you could buy this in bulk.. I would use it on every thing... To create the flower on this card I used the "Birds and Bloom" die from S.U. then added ink to antique. followed by a brad. Finished up with the Mothers day sentiment from the "All Holidays" set from S.U.

I know you are thinking what does Mother day have to do with "Much Ado With Nothing" well it doesn't directly.. But as I was making this card I though it would be a beautiful Mother day card for my Mother in Law. She loves blue.

Don't for get to check our the creation by my co host Sankari HERE. And this weeks Audrey winners Here.

Hope you enjoy the show.
