Just to give you a little background, I have been following CSCC since #24 and have really admired Brooke and Sankari for maintaining this blog and keeping so many people guessing. All of the entries to their challenges have been great. CSCC # 50 is "Pretty Woman" with paper piecing as the challenge.
I'm sure that it had been about 10 years since I had seen it. So we rented it and and watched it again. My memory of the film was the change in Vivian's self esteem and her realization that she could have a different life. I had forgotten that Edward had also made a huge change in his life...the desire and ability to have a close, personal relationship.
I took my inspiration from the major changes in Vivian's and Edward's lives. Their meeting was a fluke...he was looking for Beverly Hills and she was looking for a "date". During the time they spent together, they helped each other look into themselves and make the changes necessary to have a happier life. The centerpiece of my card is two paper pieced butterflies. The butterfly is a true symbol of change.
To make this card, I used all Stamp' Up products:
Stamps; Floral and Fauna (ret.) and Warm Words
Paper; Whisper White, and Certainly Celery which I embossed with Texturz Plates SU Backgrounds 1 DSP; Tea Party and Pink Flamingo (paper piecing)
Ink; Basic Black and Certainly CeleryMisc.; Styled Silver Hardware, and W. White taffeta ribbon colored with Almost Amethyst marker
Love to you all, Grammie Jackie
