Hey everyone!
Welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! 

How many of you love to create while watching TV?  Sometimes I turn it on just to make me company while I make my cards and projects.  This week we want you to create something based on one of your favorite movies.  I know most of us have at least one favorite movie in each gender.  So whether it is a drama, a romantic comedy… even a thriller!!  We want you to set free the drama queen in you and create something inspired by a movie. 

For this week we have two great sponsors:

* $12 Gift Certificate

* $20 Gift Certificate 

I made my card using the set Tie One On from TAWS.  I made an unusual use of the big tie in the set.  Instead of using it for a masculine card, I went for a very girly look... with a tie!!!  Anyway, I was inspired with the movie 27 Dresses.  This is a still image of one of my favorites scenes of the movie and the one I used for y source of inspiration:

To make the dress, I stamped the tie and then added some ruffles to the dress, an accent at the waist and a string of buttons.

I think the quote I used is perfect for the card.

Here is a full look at my card:

I hope you get inspired and play with us this week at DYSU!!  Have a great day!!

Silk flowers
Gypsy DP paper from Basic Grey (A very old collection!!) - But any delicate DP will do ;)
