My very 1st Cinema Saturday Challenge

So there is this great blog that uses Movies as inspiration for their weekly challenges... I LOVE Movies!!! lol it's the greatest thing ever!!! anyways, I have been watching them for a few weeks now and just had not had a chance to play yet =( SO this week is Ever After A Cinderella Story which is seriously one of my Fav movies!!!! I watch it so much when I craft not that I watch it it just runs and rund and runs for background noise lol So I of course had to play!
So the requirements was it was supposed to have flourishes and well I dont have any =( I think i need to go buy some more cricut carts he hee hee, but i had this great embossing folder for my cuttlebug that was a damask which is kinda flourish like so that is what I used.
Here are 2 pics one with a black background and one with a white since I used a dark silver cardstock and white and blue it made it hard to get a great photo so i did both background option
I used my cricut with the Dreams Come True cart to cute the layers of the dress. I uses a thin white metalic CS for the base of the dress and embossed it on my cuttlebug. I used the dark metalic silver cardstock as a shadow, and I used some of the bazzil blings CS to make the blue accenst. I used bunches of little pearls to bling it up. I used a frosty white vellum and hand designed the wings and then glittered them all over! (they did kind of curl while drying so i just put them through the cuttle bug with no folders but sadwiched between paper ( so i didnt get glitter all over) and tada! it was flat again! I used dimensionals to attach the wings to teh dress and the dress to the card to give it dimension. I also used the damask embossing folder on the background blue and layered white bazzils bling, and the dark silver cardstock. everything was pearly or sparkly and it is a little hard to see but it very pretty. anyways I hope you like, because I had great fun doing it! I just might have to go back and do some of their past movies as I see many of my favs listed he hee hee
you should go check them out at Cinema Saturdays
