This week our movie for inspiration at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is "Tristan and Isolde".  The required element is a gatefold or trifold opening.

This movie is a romance, and a tale of warriors.  After watching it, and letting it seep down into my subconcious, I was most inspired by Lord Marke and Tristan's relationship.  Tristan was rescued and taken in by the Lord who favored him over his own nephew (his own blood).

My card is kind of a masculine card, and so I had a really hard time embellishing it.  So it's plain, but I think the sentiment is very appropriate.

The stamps for the sentiments, including the inside ("My door is always open".) are from Waltzing Mouse...the designer and owner, Claire Brennan, lives in Northern Ireland.  The "door handles" are hodgepodge hardware from Stampin' Up as is the paper - Temping Turquoise and retired dsp.

I hope you like this card and think it's a good match for the movie...which I LOVED, by the way.


  1. This is a GREAT match for the movie, Jackie! I love it!

  2. I agree with Julia - good interpretation and nice design.

  3. I just love this. Your use of the "door Handles" is perfection! LOVE IT!

  4. Great paper and hardware. Love the sentiments.

  5. What a cute sentiment... I have never hear that one... I love the colors and the paper I have this paper and still have never used it.... And Of course I had to have it.. Maybe it's not used because then it would all be gone and that would be

    THANKS for playing....

  6. The sentiment is was made for your card, awesome.
