Simon Says....Let's go to the movies!!! and Dry Embossing

This week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is "Let's Go To The Movies" and DRY EMBOSSING ~~ I don't know about you but I love going to the movies! Too bad it is sooooo expensive!!!!! The last movie we saw was Hot Tub Time Machine - it was funny but not worth the $23 we spent to go to it!! LOL The BEST movie I've seen so far that WAS worth the money, was Avatar!! OMG, that movie was AWESOME!!!!! Anyone else see it and LOVE it? Anyone hate it??

Anyway, on to my project for this week!! I have used a LOT of Tim Holtz products this week!!!
I made a card and a gift card holder. The stamp set I used was a Tim Holtz set called "At the Movies"...it is GREAT!!!! I also used Tim Holtz film strip ribbon - which is really neat! It feels just like real filmstrip.....it isn't soft like "ribbon".....it is TOTALLY cool stuff!!!! I distressed using Distress Inks (Walnut) as well. The D'vine swirls folder for my Cuttlebug is used on the gift card holder. I of course had to add Tilda, so she could showcase the movie ticket!!! LOL You can get ALL of the stuff I used at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!!
