Sweet Sketch Wednesday #45 plus a BONUS!

Hello!! I am always so happy for Fridays, I say this every week, I know, but its true every week! My favorite challenges post on Fridays and I get to "sleep in" tomorrow! I always seem to wake up at the same time whether I am sleeping in or not .. lol ..
Anyway, this week my BFF Cassie, and I decided to add a twist to a couple challenges we are playing this weekend. We thought it would be fun to both submit a card using the same sketch, same theme, same dp and the same stamp set. We live 1500 miles apart, so it will be very interesting to see how different or similar our cards may turn out.
Our sketch is from my new favorite sketch blog, Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Our theme is from the Raise the Bar blog, where this week the challenge is to "Raise the Movie Bar" or use a favorite movie, any era, genre as the theme. When I first saw the raise the bar challenge, this stamp set came to mind, it is from My Favorite Things' collection Who's that Girl - Chick Flick. So my card does not have a specific movie theme, it definately has 'watching movies' as a theme! And the final part of the extra challenge between Cassie and I is to use Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety dp.  
Details:
Stamps: MFT Chick Flick
Paper: Clearly Coordinating Cherry go Round (CDStamps), whisper white, Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety dp
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor peach, Tombow Markers: 245 Sweet Pea, 985 Bee Pollen, 856 Cherry Go Round, N75 Stone Slab - colors are from clearly coordinating collection
Tools/Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Dew Drops, Ticket corner punch
Technique: Paper Piecing
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope to see you again soon!

lol! At first I thought it was an odd coincidence that your card also used the MFT stamp. What a fun idea to do with a friend! Cute! Thanks for participating in the SSW challenge!
