Pretty Woman, walking down the street.....it's Quirky Charades

Here's my second attempt at playing Quirky Charades, this time my card is about a book and a song, Pretty Woman. Once again I was singing this song all the way through making my card!

I used Molly from Limited Runs, isn't she gorgeous!
I decided I wanted the film strip somewhere and it ruined her to have it over her, so I decided to put the street scene, using a Hero Arts stamp, behind her in the film - she is walking the streets after all!
I found the perfect papers in my 8"x8" DCWV Rockstar stack (discontinued), and I had looked at the smaller stack first, but it wasn't big enough. I was amazed to find that the larger stack had more foiled papers and more designs, and I hadn't noticed this beauty before and I am so glad I managed to find someone selling it. The pink seemed perfect for my theme, and I added the strip of stars which I also liked. Molly is coloured with Promarkers and Graph'it markers, I coloured her hair and did the shadow with Graph'its and the rest with Promarkers. The street scene is also coloured with a combination of the two. Molly was die cut with a Spellbinders die, the film strip is a Sizzix originals die. I added some black lace which seemed appropriate too.
I haven't added a sentiment yet.

  8. What a fun card, a sweet take on this great song.
    I'm the coordinator at Pile It On, and I wanted to address your comment about our font being very small. I've dealt with this issue on my own blog; blogger makes it really small or something. However, when I look at the PIO site the font looks the same size as on your blog, so I'm not sure what's going on. Thank you for letting me know; I'm going to look into our settings and make sure the font size is correct; and do let me know if next week's post seems larger. Thanks, CG
