It's An Edward Kind Of Day!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!!

OMG...Breaking Dawn is going to be here SO soon!  I've already purchased my tickets...and my BFF Dina and I have a tradition...we go twice in one day!  WOOT!  It all started with Twilight (of course).  We went to see it, both went home, and then, within an hour, were on the phone discussing how much we HAD to see it back we went!  LOL!

I created this card to send to Dina using the fabulous Who's That Girl, Chick Flick!  How PERFECT is this set for our Twilight obsession???  I stamped the focal scene numerous times, both on cardstock and onto patterned paper, and colored some parts with Copic Markers, while paper piecing others.  There are ALOT of layers on the focal panel.
The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC142 and I used the AWESOME Mini Film Strip Die-Namics for the horizontal panel.  All of the patterned papers are Lost and Found Union Square from My Minds Eye.  I cut out a panel with the Just The Ticket Die-Namics and then, using the Just The Ticket stamp set, stamped the border around the ticket.  I then stamped "It's an Edward kind of Day" onto the ticket.  The sentiment in the set reads "It's an extra butter kind of day", so I simply did not ink up "extra butter", and stamped "Edward" using the Mini Banner Alphabet.  I added a heart cut with the Hearts A Plenty Die-Namics and a button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics, tied with some Charcoal Twine.

To finish off, I cut a panel with the Mini Ticket Strip Border Die-Namics, and then stamped "Rated" and "BFF" onto two of them.  This die perforates the paper, so I just separated them and stacked them on top of the other.  I also added a bit of selective stitching.

On the inside, I added another sentiment "I give our friendship two thumbs up!" and stamped the popcorn stamp.  I added a bit more selective stitching and called it done!

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on this card:
