from Pretty Woman

This card is for the challenge over at Cinema Saturday .  It was to do a card reflecting something memorable from the movie Pretty Woman.  There were a lot of great scenes...started to do her singing (awful !!) in the bathtub! but then I thought of all the gorgeous dresses she wore....couldnt decide between the white one with the black hat or that gor-geous red number where he presented that gor-geous necklace!  so went with both....thankfully the set from SU provided the stamps! perfect match for this challenge...

I pieced the red dress and used red puffy embossing power to try and give it that velvet look. You can't tell in the pic, but one corner of the bottom of the dress is raised to give it more of a swirl.

You see my attempt to add Julia's gorgeous hair under her hat!

and I loved these three lines!  I can be so frustrated with DH and yet, if he says something romantic - all forgiven.................................hmmmmm.....................well, usually!  LOL

Stamps:  SU's Haute Couture
Paper: SU's white and black, Gina K's Rocket Red
Ink:  SU's black and red
Coloring : Copics
Embellishments: red puffy embossing powder, CB folder, mini red pearls
Technique: embossing, piecing, matting

Who else is a Pretty Woman fan?

sorry, just received email - the two statements in black are said by Julia Roberts
                                        the red "you're stunning" was said to her by Richard Gere
hope that helped understand my card  :))
