TTIC#18 ~ Twilight Valentines

Happy Tuesday, Everyone! This week's timely challenge comes from the fabulous Julie... Read on:

twilight-tuesday-challenge-graphicHello everyone — hopefully you are in a mushy Valentine mood — ’cause that’s our challenge theme for today!

The creative part of the challenge is to make a Valentine that could be given to one character from another in the Twilight world. With all of those couples, there should be enough to inspire us! Just to be clear — as much as many of us might want to gift Rob with multiple mushy Valentines — this particular challenge is a Twilight character thing rather than a Rob thing.

For the comment portion of the challenge — talk a bit about the couples in the Twilight world. Which couple’s story you might relate to or admire, which couple might not work for you (hey, imprinting on a baby theme - I’m looking at you!). Anything you like. I would bet that a lot of us love the stories because of the romantic elements — just elaborate on that a bit, and tell us what parts of that appealed to you.

So, here is my Valentine for Edward from Bella. I know, I know... P1020431 sheesh! She makes his life a beautiful thing, and he is always looking for ways to tell her. That's where I was headed with this card - got lost along the way and ended up in my favorite destination: Toomuchville, deep in the heart of Dumdum County. I may try and do something to backdrop the vellum heart - I just love that paper and wanted to save the brocade design. Oh well. I'll see what I can do with it and get back to you! (See those felt hearts? From Dani!! :)) Plus, this card was ridiculously difficult to photograph and edit. The Purely Pomegranate paper with the Real Red "pop" looks much better than it photographed.

For the record: Even though I am Team Jake, I choose to block out the whole baby imprinting thing, just like I prefer to ignore that Renesmee (aka: freaky baby) exsists! lol Having said that, I love Carlisle and Esme's relationship - from what we see it is very pure, loving and respectful. A healthy love affair. And sweet - we are talking about Valentine's Day here, aren't we? Sweet is the flavor of the day!

OME, you are SOOO funny! My card for today came from "toomuchville" as well. I actually took some stuff off of it before I photographed it, and it STILL looks too busy!

Your card is beautiful! I love it! It's really romantic looking. The colors are just gorgeous.

Dani said...

LOL! I was having trouble taking pictures of my cards as well! i am so happy you were able to use the hearts.

Rebecca said...

I laughed over "toomuchville" but I think your card is beautiful! Love the pinks and reds together and those are definitely hard colors to photograph together. Those hearts are yummy aren't they? I'm saving mine for somethin' special! The vellum is a great touch, too!

Margie said...

OME! I love it all sooo much! I {{heart}} Toomuchville ;) I've lived there for too long, lol!
Your card definitely reminds me of Bella & Edward - always trying to say 'I love you' in sooo many different ways :)

Bwahahaha.... forget Nessie exists. How can such a thing happen, that name alone is such a train wreck that she is permanently burned in my brain.

Lovely card. :D I dig it!!
