It's Movie Madness at Ike's World Challenge Blog

Hello, crafters! It's a new month and a new challenge at Ike's World Challenge Blog! The optional theme is MOVIE MADNESS. What's your favorite movie? My favorite grown-up movie is Groundhog Day, with Hidden Figures and the Harry Potter series coming in second and third. My favorite children's movies are Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (I just love the chocolate room) and Peter Pan. Since I seem to gain weight just looking at chocolate, I thought it was safer to be inspired by the "boy who never grew up." Besides, Ike has a really great image of him, as well as Tink and Wendy. I can't wait to see if she'll add Captain Hook to her collection!
I have been using photographs as backgrounds in quite a few of my cards lately. This is a Nightscape of Puerto Rico taken by my daughter-in-law (CamiT Photography). When I printed out the photograph, my printer heads were acting up, but as a crafter, I can use a  mistake to my advantage (sometimes). So when I saw these pinkish lines in my sky, I decided to use Diamond Stickles lightly over them to add a little sparkle to the magic of the night.
I could have stopped with the first part of the sentiment, but I like to leave them laughing. That's why I added the "just Google it" sign on the bottom. Hey, if Google can direct you to swim from London to New York City, I'm sure flying to Neverland should be no problem for them...
While this is an optional theme at Ike's World Challenge Blog,I would love to see what movie inspires your crafting this month. Will it be a romantic comedy, an action film or a thriller? I'll keep an eye out for your project! Just don't forget to link it up at the main blog!!

Awesome! Love your Peter Pan on your card! The green outfit is perfect for our challenge! I live in the town in Texas that Mary Martin grew up in and she starred in the theater version of Peter Pan. We even have a statue of her as Peter Pan in front of our library! Weatherford, Texas Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Cards in Envy.

Really gorgeous. I love him on that fabulous photo and your 'fix' with the printer booboo is such a cool idea :-) I don't know Hidden Figures so I'm going to go look that up :-D
Thank you for making this for me at IWC.
