Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge {Pretty Woman}

Hey everybody! Well, I finally got my PTI order in yesterday, and I haven't been able to put them down since! :) I love them! I got the new Signature Christmas and Vintage Labels. I also got the Polka Dots Basics II, I have been wanting that one for awhile, plus I got free shipping! :)
I received a comment from Brooke last week inviting me to come and play in the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. The ladies have done an amazing job, because this is their 50th Challenge! :) This week's theme is the movie "Pretty Women"! I loved this show growing up, seeing them fall in love with each other! So I was excited to play! We are to do some type of paper piecing! I made two cards for the challenge! I really loved the brown polka dot dress in the movie, so I had to make a brown polka dot dress! I added some pearls for the pearl earrings she had on! I really like this card! :) Here is the first one!
Then on the next one... Her black patten leather thigh high boots kept coming to my mind, and the safety pin she had, holding the zipper up on one! :) I free handed the boots (not my style of boots), and stitched it to make it look like a zipper and added the safety pin! :) I used the colors in the outfit she had on with the boots! I wanted to make a card I could really use, so I made it into a Birthday card! I figured, with the tore up boot, it gives you a reason to go shopping! :) I also had to put the wadded up money all around in the picture, like she had all of her money when the Hotel manager helped her! Anyway, I really had a great time making these cards, and I hope ya'll go over and check it out! :)
