Casino Royale

I learned how to make paper medallions last week for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge and it was so much fun that I made more than I needed. This week's movie "Casino Royale" (challenge 89) was a perfect follow up as I began to see poker chips in those medallions. The challenge, however is to use a silhouette. I've created my dapper 007 silhouette (Sean Connery in my mind's eye) from a Stamps Happen image of Fred Astaire! He is reveling in his Royal Flush which is indeed a lucky draw from my old gin deck. The edges of the poker chips were touched with Top Boss and dusted with JudiKins Black Diamonds ep. Thanks Cinema Saturday for another great challenge and a reminder of those great 007 flicks!

Other stamps and stuff: Art Impressions, gold gift wrap, Sizzix, EK Success border punch, pop dots, McGill and Marvy craft punches, MS metallic pen.

What a striking card! (And Sean Connery was always the Bond for my money!)

And what a great job you did. Those chips in the medallions are such a great touch and 007 never looked better. Great take on the challenge. Could you be adding an Audrey to your sidebar........Good luck!
