Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #100 - Pride & Prejudice

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is celebrating their 100th Challenge - and the movie they chose is Pride and Prejudice. I love love this movie. I have watched the latest one so many times and I have read the book so many times :) Awesome indeed.

I am not really good at creating Vintage cards. So, for this card, I took inspiration from the dresses and colors from the movie. I loved that one scene where Elizabeth is visiting Darcy's Home at Pemberley. I loved the striped dress that she is wearing in that scene - you can see some pictures here.

So, here is my card based on the dress from the above scene and with some vintage papers that I had in my stash. I paper pierced the dress and I did not have the exact striped paper as the dress, but I think this comes close. The stamp set is GKD - Retro Boutique designed by Rupa Shevde. I used some pearls and lace as well :)

Here is the CSCC Challenge,

I used Taylored Expressions Sketch #133 for this card,
