There's Only One You

Hi All!

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!  With all of the great movies out this month, we headed to the theaters on Saturday.  We saw Iron Man 3 last weekend (which was great), so we headed out to see The Great Gatsby this weekend.  I read the book a few weeks ago and was excited to see it on the big screen..  I must say, this movie is Fab-u-lous!  It is one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book (The Notebook being the other exception.)

I adored everything about this movie: the clothes, the hair, the parties, the music and, of course, Leo.  This role was made for him and in my mind, there couldn't have been a better Gatsby.  This movie was made to be seen on the big screen, so be sure to get out there and see it.  I'm already giving it my Oscar nod.  It's that good! that I've given my ringing endorsement of the movie, I can move!  My card for you today is a CASE of this card by Nichole Heady.  I loved the colors and the simple design.  I thought it would work perfectly with the Vintage Verses stamp set from Sale-A-Bration 2013.

I wanted a color combo that would be fresh & fun for spring/summer.  I chose this print from the Summer Smooches DSP.  I paired it up with Peach Parfait, Tangerine Tango and Certainly Celery.  The flowers were stamped from the Apple Blossoms stamp set, cut out and popped up.  I added a flat backed pearl to finish them off.

I had a REALLY hard time not adding layers to this, but I persevered and left it as is.  I do appreciate the simplicity of it.  Hope you like it too!  Thanks so much for stopping by...and don't forget to go see Gatsby *wink*!

Aww, this is beautiful, Julie! I love those flowers with the long stems, and placing the sentiment over them is fabulous. Great color combo and paper, too. Loving the pearls in the center of each flower.
We've been on a movie kick lately, too. We recently saw Oblivion and Star Trek. :)
