Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge Winners

Hi Everyone,

First of all a HUGE thank you to all who played along with us - we loved seeing all of your amazing creations and reading about where you got your inspiration from! Also a big apology not to posting this earlier - the holidays have descended and amidst traveling, birthdays and christmas shopping - life has definitely turned it up a notch!

We had so many wonderful creations that are inspired by our 100th movie challenge: Pride & Prejudice These 4 creations caught our attention with their beauty and how they connected their creations to different aspects of the movie:

We absolutely LOVED and were just in absolute awe of Vladuska's amazing creation - WOW! She created such a beautiful book cover for her original Pride & Prejudice book from 1969 that is inspired by the feel of Jane Austen. Where do we even start? From the very beginning of her post, her project just captures Pride and Prejudice and brings it to life. All the details and 3D feel of this bookcover, makes you feel like you can walk through those stone gates and float into Jane Austen-land! Since our sponsors don't ship to Slovenia - we will be contacting you to send you something else for this gorgeous work of art!

1. The winner of the Taylored Expressions prize goes to this lovely card from Amy C has such amazing details! The handmade flowers, the embossed metal, the pearls, the hatpins: all reminded us of all the scenes where the women would be sitting around doing their embroidery, needlework and crafting. The layout of her card made us think of an empire waisted dress that the women wore in this time period and the soft colors and textures and lovely sentiment, all captured a timeless Jane Austen feel.  You can read more about all the gorgeous details of her lovely card here:

2. The winner of the Verve Stamps prize goes to this gorgeous card that Maureen created for the challenge - and the sentiment is just beautiful! We both want to say it as often as possible to our own DHs everyday (with a British accent of course!) Maureen's style is so clean and elegant and they she framed the quote as the focal image with all the gorgeous embellishments and stitching is simply beautiful!!! The soft pinks and gorgeous papers and patterns are simply perfect! You can check out more details of how she made this delightful creation here:

3.  The winner of the JustRite Stamps prize goesWe both just loved Leslie's take on this movie challenge - as soon as we saw the sentiment: "Don't judge me by my relatives" - we both burst out giggling!!! How true! For this movie, Elizabeth and Jane (the two older sisters) have to face so much from society because of the shameless behavior of their relatives (parents and sisters). Even in his first proposal to Elizabeth, Mr. Darcy says: "The relative situation of our families is such that any alliance between us must be regarded as a highly reprehensible connection." So romantic right?! Her use of the lace requirement in the handkerchief made us have one of those "why didn't I think of that!" - so clever!!! You can check out more details and read from where she got her inspiration from over here:

4. The winner of the Gina K. Designs prize goes to this gorgeous card created by Danni C., which showcases the importance of music in this movie and how it really sets the tone of this movie - it makes us thinks of multiple things that centers around music. Music was a sign of accomplishment for the ladies in this era - whether it was sung or played - the mastery of music indicated a certain class and rank. There are so many pivotal scenes in this movie that revolve around music, the most memorable of which is Mr. Darcy's love-fire look at Elizabeth as she is at the piano We loved the way that the music papers were distressed and the gorgeous heart and small bouquet of flowers  was just the perfect finishing detail. Please check out where Danni got her inspiration from in the movie and all the lovely details of her card over here (and also to see that smoldering look of Mr. Darcy on her blog ;) 

Thank you again to all who played along - you guys just constantly inspire and amaze us and we loved looking at all of your creations and reading from where you drew your inspiration from this movie! 

Thank you for making our 100th Challenge as exciting as our very first challenge, where we started off this blog with the very same movie that started this blog challenge adventure: Pride & Prejudice!

Big hugs and love to all!
the Cinema Sisters :)
