Inspired by Spongebob's BFF Patrick

Yes, my title says it all.  LOL! 

So, Gina's challenge this month is to be inspired by your favorite movie.  Most of my favorite movies are science fiction and mainly those that take place in space.  You know, Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, etc.  Maybe I am really an alien?! 

Anyway, one of my favorite non-sci-fi movies is Spongebob Squarepants The Movie.  Spongebob and Patrick crack me up. Makes me feel like a Goofy Goober! :o)  So I chose to use that movie as my inspiration.

The set I chose to use is Quite a Catch. How perfect that there is a starfish image that reminds me of Spongebob's BFF, Patrick. If I slapped a pair of tighty whiteys on him who would know the difference, right? LOL! 

Of course I had to make him a pink/coral color like he is in "real life".  So I stamped him onto Pure Luxury (PL) Innocent Pink card stock and colored his eyes with a white gel pen to give him some life.  I had to mix in some yellow for good ol' Spongebob, so I cut an oval from PL Lemon Drop as his backdrop. I stamped "Don't Worry Be Happy" from the set because Spongebob and Patrick seem to live this motto.  I embossed with the Swiss Dots folder to make it look like bubbles surrounding him.  The green layer is actually paper with fish swimming.  I embossed it with the Mosaic folder.  I layered that on some more PL Innocent Pink. The card base is PL 120 lb. White. Love that stuff for card bases!!  I used Vicki's sketch for this week as my layout.  When I look at the starfish on this card it definitely makes me want to smile. :o)


And here is the movie cover image that gave me my inspiration.


If you haven't seen this movie and have a goofy sense of humor, you've got to check it out.  I need to borrow it from niece and watch it again.

When Gina did the first peek of this set, I saw the eyes and funny teeth on the flounder, and screamed Sponge Bob! You are spot on with you're movie choice, Melissa. I love the colors that you used!
