Madness at the Movies

I'll be back in the morning to post the full details but I'm down to the wire for the House Mouse Challenge. This time it was At the Movies. We were to create a card inspired by a movie title. It was a bit tricky for me to figure one out, but my wonderful hubby took on the task. I have him 10 random HM stamps and he had ideas for each one! I went with this cutie. My hubby's suggestion was "Field of Dreams" and I thought "A Raisin in the Sun" would also be appropriate! LOL. I'll be back with more details in the morning! ETA - Okay, I'm back with the full details and more photos. I love the sketches over at Midnight Madness and am always pushed to push my cards to a new level. There were a few other challenges I threw into the mix as well. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
