Exploring Cricut: Movie challenge

Welcome to the last challenge of February! This was a very tricky challenge for me and I flip-floped many times before settling on the project I submitted.

The challenge for this week was to create a layout, card, or other paper craft on the theme of show business. Wow! Diane is really making us think out of the box on this one. Considering everyone I've shown the project to has needed an explanation I guess I either went too far out of the box, or I wasn't successful in making a connection to the theme. I like to think I just went too far out of the box, but I'll let you decide. Explanation will be at the bottom. Now to the project. Once again I decided to do a card (I know you all are surprised).

Base is white daisy 5x7 (CTMH)
Cardstock: Twilight 5x7 (CTMH)
Arch: desert sand, white daisy, new england ivy (CTMH)Bloom Arch:4.65x4.53, flowers 3.48x4.53
You're Invited:White Daisy, Alphalicious 1"
Ranger Stickles: Pink
Sparkles (CTMH)

OK: Now for my explanation. I am a big Twilight fan so I decided to do my "show business" with that movie series. The inspiration for the card of course came from Edward and Bella's wedding from Breaking Dawn, the quote is from Edward's toast to Bella at their reception, and of course the color of cardstock for the background: Twilight. The last part was an afterthought after I determined the rest of the card. The only thing I can say in my defense is I couldn't help myself, I'm addicted to these characters! Go Team Edward!!!

Breaking Dawn: Twilight, Gypsy font 1"
Movie Night: Twilight, Gypsy font 1"
