Inspired by a Movie

Hello again,  yes, I know, I'm like a bus (no, not the back end of one!) but for the fact that I haven't posted in ages and here I am, with two posts in one day.

I've got a card for the new Less Is More challenge which is inspired by "A FILM".  Easy enough you say but when it's one layer week, it becomes a real challenge. But challenges that make you think are the ones that I like best.

Anyhows after having a few ideas but then realising I didn't have the stamps to match, I did a quick googly search and came across this poster for the film Victor, Victoria


I don't think I've seen this film - but I do have the samps ...


A simple CAS wedding (or anniversary) card.  The moustache stamp was bought in New York (never used!) and the lips one is by Stampin' Up (never used!).  Both images are clear embossed so they're shiny IRL.  The font is Edwardian script.

Thanks very muchly for popping in, got a school meeting tonight but will be round to visit you later.

Take care
Suze xx

Oooh I remember this film. Julia Andrews plays the lead. She pretends to be a man who does a female singing impersonation to get a job. It of course gets all complicated with funny results.

Super interpretation of the film and it makes a great card. x

Wow Suze - a fabulous CAS take on the film title. You may not have used these stamps before, but they are absolutely perfect for the theme!
