Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #45 - Sixteen Candles

Good Morning Everyone!!!! 

We are excited to feature the 80's classic movie: Sixteen Candles in honor of legendary director John Hughes who passed away at the age of only 59 last week. Joh  Hughes was also the director of 80's cult classics such as: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science and Planes.Trains and Automobiles among others. This movie is a coming of age kind of story about the sixteenth birthday of the the character Molly Ringwald plays and also brings out highschool politics - highschool crushes - and all the highschool drama - along with a ton of hip 80's fashiion! Gotta love it!!!

So this week's challenge is a SUPER easy and fun one too! Ready?

The challenge requirement this week:
 is to make a birthday card!!!
and if you make it 80's colors - that's bonus points!!!
Here is an example of 80's COLORS - check out this retro pic!

Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie: Sixteen Candles:

Okay - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie - partly because I thought that the character of Jake Ryan was dreamy (did you know that the actor who played Jake Ryan, Michael Schoeffling now owns a woodmaking shop and creates handcrafted items!!!) and the other part because the very last scene still gives me tingles.... you know the scene where they lean into each other over a bday cake! 
Well - for this challenge requirement - I wanted to do something FUN and 80's retro ish - and create a bday card with those fun and bright colors in mind. I found this inspiration pic while blogging and then used that for my card:

This card is a little out of my box... but it was a blast to make!
I had so much fun making this card and the whole time I was watching the movie .... and still that last scene just gives me happy tingles :) LOVE it!!!

You can check out my blog for more details here at my blog!

Oh man, when I think of 80's so many things rush to mind like those Bill Cosby Sweaters, big shoulder pads, leg warmers, jelly sandles, acid washed jeans, banglese, rubiks cubes, & bad permed hair with big bangs. eeeesh. NOT that I ever did that as a kid ... well maybe the leg warmers. Sigh.

This should be a fun challenge.

Sankari W. said...

I know - the possibilities of 80's retro fun is HUGE!!! (how can it be possible that the 80's are retro! man do I feel old!!!!)

and Amy - I still have my leg warmers - and yes - I still wear them.... not outside though! lol!!!!

finally been able to get a CSCC done! Must admit to not watching the movie yet... yes, I have never seen it either, but if I held out any longer on making a card till I watched (or rewatched) a movie who knows when I would get one done!

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
