Sankari's Creation Inspired by the movie: Elizabeth the Golden Age
There was something so captivating about the first movie Elizabeth - there was something just lovely to watch with the amazing costumes (wow - the details are simply lovely) and the same in the movie Elizabeth the Golden Age. I just loved the cinematography and colors and the sets, costumes were like eye candy. I adore Cate Blanchett in these movies - she is an amazing actress - and the strength of character, emotion, vulnerability under the strength and beauty are simply lovely to watch. I am in LOVE with this dress/costume that Elizabeth wore and so i chose it for my card inspiration. You can kind of see the scoring that I did on the top to mimic the dress: (this picture comes from Grace Magazine)
I chose the sentiment: "Anything is Possible" because I felt that is how she ruled - she created possibilities and roles that were not thought possible.
I loved making this card because I was watching the movie as I made it and love making cards when everything feels like it comes together :)

I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week!!!
Can't wait to see your creations!!
Brooke's Creation Inspired by the movie: Elizabeth the Golden Age
For the challenge this week I decided to make a piece of jewelry inspired by the Queen. So instead of cutting scoring paper I was digging through my gems and findings then polishing silver.. I really enjoyed making this piece. I decided to include a little angle to watch over the queen as she make decisions for her country... It wouldn't be royal if it didn't include gems and precious metal.
Come visit me on my blog for a little family History and pictures of Queen Elizabeth..
