Funny Girl

Gina is looking for her new Center Stage Spotlight Designer for the upcoming May release. The challenge is to think of a favorite movie and make a card about something in the movie that inspired me. Well...... My favorite movie is Funny Girl, I loved the music and the sense of humor and the love story. My favorite part of the movie was when "Fanny" was on the tugboat going to meet her man and she was singing "Don't Rain on my Parade". Remember that part? So here is where my "WELL" comes comes in. I tried the card with the sailboat - just didn't quite cut it so I just went with the elegant look of Barbra and the musical score in the background. Somehow I just had to go with the red, black and white. I used several stamp sets for this card. I used Sew Pretty by Asela, Vintage Backgrounds by Nina, and Vintage Borders also by Nina. It was not a difficult card to make once I gave up on the tugboat!I used some oval nesties and some red twill ribbon to make the flower. I had some gems for the center of the flower and for earrings. I used copics to color. Thanks for stopping and I sure do appreciate the chance to win. Stop by Stamp TV and click on the blog on the right hand side to see the incredible other cards that wanna be designers have created - they  are awesome!!!
