More Like The Movies

Good Morning All, 
The weekend is almost  upon us, thank goodness!
It's been a busy week & I've been very tired!
I have yet another Anniversary card to share with you today!
This one is for my brother & sister in law.

I used the small sepia toned image from one of the La Pashe 
Wrinklies At The Movies, decoupage sheets.
(When I was making this card, I had a song going through my head,
it was a tune by Dr Hook, back in the day, More Like The Movies.
I loved that song then & I still do now!)

I wanted to keep the card flat so I could easily pop it in the post.
The card base is A6 Kraft CS. I added a slightly offset plain black mat,
 then a panel of white embossed CS which was offset the other way.
The flimstrip was cut using a spellbinders die & I added some clear 
transparency fim to the cut out sections.
The little ticket sentiment was in my folder of images & sentiments
which have been printed off for a while. I layered up the bits from the
 cut out sections of the fim strip die & added it to the top.

You cant quite see it but I've a added a black panel to the inside of the 
card, with a white heart to write on. I've also added two
little black die cut hearts to decorate.
I hope you like my card, more to the point I hope the anniversary couple do!
Thanks for stopping by.
