CSCC#35: Some like it Hot

The challenge this week for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is the 1959 movie "Some Like it Hot" and I am a guest designer!! I hadn't seen this movie, so checked it out from the library. It was funny, but still didn't win me over to old movies. Just don't care too much for them! :)
It was definitely a challenge! For this card, I was inspired by the black and white, the gender-bending comedy, and the element of disguise in the movie. I chose to do a black and white main card with pops of red (I just imagine Marilyn Monroe in red! :). I made the background black with a masculine pinstripe detail and then added my feminine ruffle in red at the bottom, reminiscent of a skirt. Then because I wanted to echo the surprise element found under the skirts of Joe and Jerry in the movie, instead of opening normally, this card has a hidden slider and the message comes out from beneath the ruffle. I went with a wedding theme because there is lots of talk of that in the movie! Here's the card:
Supplies: cardstock-Papertrey Ink, Bazzill (gray); stamps-PTI(lines, circles), Rubber Soul (image, sentiment); ribbon-Martha Stewart (red & gray), Offray (all other); other-Colorbox chalk ink, PTI ink

That's all I've got for today. Off to play with my niece and nephew that are visiting! Happy Saturday!
