It's Not Magic, It's the Force!

SO EXCITED that we're going to see the new Star Wars movie tonight!  And again tomorrow night, 'cause that's how I roll.  I'm not going in costume, but my brother is so I hope I get to see pics.

But you're here for the card today, right?  Right.


It's not magic, it's the Force.  It surrounds us, it penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together.  Like duct tape, only cooler.

I'm such a nerd.

Srsly though, I do like how this card turned out.  I started with the color combo from Fab Friday:


Then I combined it with the sketch from Freshly Made and this card was done in about 10 minutes.  The only thing I wish I'd done differently is I wish I'd used shimmery white cardstock for a bit of sparkle.


I suppose since this card came together so fast that I could go back and make another one, but I'm too busy geeking out about the Star Wars premiere tonight.  May the Force be with you, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Cozy Christmas
Ink:  Pool Party, Mossy Meadow, Real Red

Something about this card REALLY appeals to me. Can't put my finger on it, so I'd just say, it has to be EVERYTHING ABOUT IT all mixed together. Very nice card.

Enjoy the movie. Can't wait to hear your review. I saw an interview with Han and Leia last night while I was putting the finishing touches on the 2nd Imperial Guard cape. Adam just picked them up and we'll be headed to the mall this evening to see them. CAN'T WAIT!!! I will have Dad take my picture with the two of them "guarding" me. SO EXCITED!!! Love you!

Gorgeous! The details all came together perfectly - and I love multi-color sentiments the most! Have fun at the movie, lol! "The Force is all around us, but you should still wear your seatbelt!"

Such a lovely card Christy! I love that sentiment and the silhouette scene! The pop or red is so pretty! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Gorgeous! Love how you've incorporated these products - the "band" of the die cut down across the middle is just perfect. Thank you so much for playing along with this FabFriday color challenge - I'm glad you did.
