365 Cards - #184 - Movie Monday

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge is Movie Monday and Pretty In Pink which is in honour of the very recently late John Hughes movie from the 80's. The challenge is to be inspired by the movie in whichever way it inspires you personally. I saw the movie in the 80's and loved it.

My card is inspired by the colour pink but the Tim Holtz ticket with LIVE on it is what the movie is all about living at 16 years old. I had a lot more pink on my card but took a lot off because I am a little over do monochromic cards which is what I tend to lean towards a lot. So, consequently I peeled off a lot of the pink lol and replaced it with other colours like Green lol.

I had fun doing my card today and as you can see I even got my old crimper out which is nearly 20 years old lol from my Print Gocco days. Alrighty then that's it from me today.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
