Wizard of Oz Challenge!

This card is for the Cinema Saturday Challenge at Sankari's blog here. Melanie of Heart, Head , and Hands blog {link on the Tee on my Right-->} mentioned the challenge on her blog and I started thinking about trying it. Then, I couldn't fall asleep last night and suddenly POOF! This idea hit me! And I had to work and wait all day today to finally sit down and make the card look like what I imagined! And it does!!

Every week Sankari challenges us to make a card inspired by a particular movie...this week's flick is the Wizard of Oz. One of my favorite parts of the movie is when the group led by Dorothy to see the Great Oz comes across a big barrier...a gigantic door! It is their first encounter with the palace inhabitants and of course, they are challenged and changed drastically from that point on! You know, Dorothy had to discover the secret of getting back home...and my card opens to reveal...

Card Details: Clear Artistic Stamp's Shimmer paper, SU Night of Navy, Versamark, SU silver embossing powder, CB Textile folder, OTC brads and flowers.

...the simple idea that the secret is within yourself! One must wish and believe...and miracles will happen! Don't those flower brads remind you of the doors with a big knob in the middle? That's what I thought of! And I just couldn't bring myself to embellish these doors any more than just with the Textile CB pretty! Part of the challenge was using something metallic on the card and mine fits in perfectly as both my doors and the flower "knobs" are metallic. Hey, I have a chance to win a Gina K set! And so do you! Check out the challenge and play along! It was REALLY fun!

{I should probably tell you that as much loved as this movie is by the ages, my little sister Kristy was so creeped out by this movie when we were kids, I think she had nightmares for a year! Of course now Horror is one of her favorite movie genres....go figure! LOL!}
