I always love the sketch challenges for TwilightTuesday.com, well let me say I LOVE ALL the challenges!!!!
Dani's sketch this week is amazing, SO many options to use this for, SB pages, digi pages, cards like mine, geez just about anything!!! Use your imagination!! You have 2 more weeks to enter a sketch challenge project in still!
Here is my take on the challenge
I used Unity stamps and scrap dp from BasicGrey and the outside stars I believe I got these from sf9erfan Michelle from a blog candy win a while back so THANKS michelle, fellow Twifriend!!!
The sentiment says "Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to LOVE and to WORK and to PLAY and to look up at the STARS"
This applies to Twilight to me, so much of Edwards energy is spent to keep Bella alive that he sometimes to me gets lost in that and doesnt let himself enjoy Bella being human either, and Bella is in such a hurry to be a vamp that she doesnt stop to enjoy things either!!! So i chose to use this on a card maybe it would be a plaque on their wall!!! the middle star is a unity stamp stamped onto more boxer dp from basicgrey and I added crystal effects to the top to shine.
I just love this line of paper, I love the rich reds that SCREAM twilight!!!
Stop over and check out the sketch challenge, tomorrow is TUESDAY!!! Yay a new TTIC challenge will be up for you to get your creative mind thinking!! PLay along so we can all see!! I have seen some new faces doing the challenges and that ROCKS!! Spread the word, the TT gals are the best and they leave the sweetest comments!! Stop by the TT FORUM too where we talk about everything, twilight, sookie, a lot of different book series, New Moon set info, chatter, we even have a discussion about Xmen wolverine!! Something for everyone!!
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration, tea time pattern BG stamp, star-Unity Stamp Co
Papers Used: Boxer dp BasicGrey, kraft, riding hood red SU
Ink Used: Basic Black SU
Accessories Used: crystal effects SU, stars
Have a wonderful day everyone!!

I could of added some gold bling but I decided to keep it real simple. I used alternating colors of pink and grey in SU patterned paper and Used Birdie inspiration Unity Stamp set! I thought the sentiment fit perfectly! The ribbon is a technique my SU demo taught me, it is a strip of red sticky strip across the whole width of the card and the ribbon is twisted and mooshed onto the tape, I think this is an awesome effect!!! Love this technique!! layers and more layers going on with this card!
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration-Unity Stamp Co
papers Used: pink pirouette, patterned paper pretty in pink and basic gray SU
ink used: basic gray SU
accessories Used: red sticky strip, white satin ribbon SU

Craft Portion: Create a project that shows your favorite part(s) of the Ballet Studio Scene.
Comment Portion: How do you feel about this scene from Twilight. Was it not scary enough? Do you think Edward made the right decision to keep Bella from turning?
So I have to say MY favorite thing about this scene in the movie is the backgound song, let me sign... I love roberts vocals, his voice is mesmerizing and haunts me. so that combined with the flashbacks in the movie was an awesome addition to Twilight and this scene. If bella would of turned then there would of been SO much missed in the future, sure Bella would of been happy but Edward would be sulky and blame himself still and it would be hard to look past that without a way for Edward to "take away" this part of her life. and think of what we the readers would of missed in future books. I dont feel the scene was very scary and little things bug me between the book and script.
I had the song playing back to back for a long time getting the feelings before I made this card... could never love it any less!
SO my card is a tribute to that.
I also went through this chapter again and picked the colors that were mentioned in Twilight, the yellow of the sun as she ran to the studio- so saffron, the dark of the room-Basic Gray, the hot pink sign on the door-pretty in pink, the blue of the TV when the video was shut off- ballet blue and red for the blood that was spilled-riding hood red.
I used rhinestones to be the mirror broken in pieces along the side of my card. I wrote in pen let me sign on the pink panel and the sentiment below says I love you. There was a huge amount of love involved in that scene for Edward to do what he did....
The white panel is stamped with argyle heart in riding hood red and distressed with basic black ink and sponged with more red.
Stamps Used: Argyle Heart-unity stamp company
Papers Used: paper pack 2 hostess, whisper white SU
Ink Used: basic black, riding hood red
Acessories Used: Rhinestones
