Sketch N Stash Monday Challenge

 Bleugh - I do hate Monday morning!  Such a busy weekend too that I don't feel that rested!  Wonderful wedding on Saturday and yesterday was OH's birthday and we  went out to lunch with our three lovelies!   But busy, you know, which means no time for card making! 
Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at Sketch N Stash and this week's sketch has been designed by our fabbie Danielle.
I used the sketch for Nick's birthday card - he's quite a film fanatic, hence the theme!

The image is Susie Stocking from Saturated Canary and the image I won as my suggestion for her name was chosen!!  I think it looks like she's looking rather wistfully up at the old Movie Stars in the backing papers!!I'd bought these gorgeoue Graphic 45 Curtain Call papers from Sandown last week with this card in mind so hence her monochromatic -ish colouring her!!  I've tried before to colour black hair like this and this is the first time that I've come anywhere near to feeling happy with it!  Practise, practise, practise!! The large film strip was cut with a Tim Holtz die, and the acetate film strip and ticket sentiments are also TH. These last two are my items that have been in my stash for more than 6 months.

We're being sponsored at SNS this challenge by Meljen Designs and there are four digi images up for grabs!!
 

Hope you can join in the challenge this coming fortnight and hope your Monday is bearable!!
