My youngest DD had been after me forever to read these books... frankly, I just wasn't interested. One day DD brought the book to work and asked me one more time to please read it. So I did, and then the second and then the third... Friends thought I fell off the face of the earth. I read all three books in 4 and a half days... wow. I still have not seen the movie... I don't know if I ever will. I don't think I've ever seen a movie based on a favorite book of mine turn out well.... KWIM?

So at 365 Cards, today's challenge is Day 142 - Movie Monday. "Let the Twilight movie inspire your card. Use a black card base or black background, patterned paper where the dominant color is red, and embellish with either glitter or rhinestones. Anything else goes."

Here is my Twilight inspired card. For my patterned paper, I ran black Bazzill through my Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder. I painted the raised swirls with Making Memories Hollyberry paint.
