New TPV challenge :)

This February gives us a leap year for 2012, and the challenge at The Paper Variety celebrates by giving us an inspirational photo. I've been a fan of Amy Adams since I saw her on The Office several years ago so I was looking forward to seeing her in this movie, Leap Year :) I finally saw it last year on HBO.. it was a super cute flick, a lot of love and laughs.... and Matthew Goode... Mmmmm.. I'd love to be locked up with him in a room just listening to him all night long.. reading a phonebook. lol His voice/accent.. So hot! ;)

There's a lot of inspiration you could pull from this movie poster. The colors, a couple, a wedding proposal (she's holding an engagement ring), use a movie title/sentiment, even something froggy and more.

For my project... When I see green and gray, I think masculine. Not to mention the fact that I couldn't stop ogling over Matthew the entire time I was deciding what to create lol So it's no surprise that I went with a masculine card using the poster's colors. 

I found that my Echo Park "Times & Seasons" kit includes green, red (her hair), black and a grayish blue... Score! And I absolutely love the mustache paper and stickers! I was stuck for a bit on what sentiment to use, but I decided on using "good luck" since the movie was set in Ireland :)

We hope you'll join us for this fun challenge! You could be the random winner to receive this awesome prize donated by our sponsor, Apron Strings Designs...

Isn't it lovely!!??

I hope to see your project linked up at TPV! :)

I'll close with the movie preview for Leap Year. It really is a cute movie, I loved it. I think I'll rent it and love it again :)

Thanks for visiting me,


  1. What a pretty prett card! I just love the color combo!

  2. Love your masculine card! I always have trouble with those. I haven't seen the movie but I watch the trailer and it looks really cute. Thanks for sharing! ~Hugs, Saundra
