Cinema Saturday Challenge


I have visited the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge many times, but have never played!  I love Sankari and Brooke's styles--they are both just so creative.  So I thought today I might try--you should go check it out!  The movie today is James Bond's Goldfinger!!!  They also have BLOG CANDY because this is their 25th challenge!  Woohoo!  I have to admit, when I was growing up, James Bond did not appeal to me at all.  I was more of a Gidget kind of gal!!  There was a tiny little movie theater in my town and when I was a little older, my mom would let me go to the movies with my girlfriend.  Now, I do enjoy them, just because they are so hysterically campy; viewing the special effects makes you realize how far we've come in this computerized age!

CSCC#25 - Goldfinger

Since I have a busy day ahead, and mainly because I am lazy, I chose a fairly simple card, kind of taking the title of "Goldfinger" literally:


I used Brushed Gold and Basic Black cardstock, and the engagement ring image from Holiday Blitz.  I have two nieces getting married this year, so I think I could probably use this for one of them!  The ring was filled in with a Zig Painty pen and the rock is glamourized with some DD glitter.  I also embossed the sentiment from Warm Words in gold EP---I just love the look of gold on gold!  The ribbon was a RAK from my wonderful friend Elaine, and it just goes so nicely with this card.  I added some rhinestone bling and it is done!  TFL!

  • Stamps:  Holiday Blitz, Warm Words
  • Paper:  Confetti White, Basic Black, Brushed Gold
  • Ink:  Stazon, Versamark
  • Acc:  Circle Punches, Gold EP, Satin Ribbon, Zig Painty, Dazz Diamonds, Bling from Michael's, Dimensionals

I know what you mean about how far we have come in the special effects department (you know what is really interesting is that Goldfinger won the Oscar in 1965 for Best Effects, Sound Effects (Norman Wanstall) I can't imagine what the movies will be like in 30 years!!!

Thank you so much for playing along in these weekly challenges LeAnne!!! You are just the best!! Can't wait for Wednesday's Throwdown!!!

This is SO elegant looking! I'm glad I saw this AFTER I made my card, or I would have been too intimidated to play along. Great job! :)
