Pretty in Pink

I’ve been having flashbacks from the 80’s. I’m 50 and I’m hitting puberty again!

I saw the original “Top Gun” in 1986 when I spent the summer in Europe. I was visiting a friend in Germany and I saw it for the first time in German. I didn’t understand a word, but I didn’t care! 😜 1986 was a good year for cult classics. “Pretty in Pink” made it’s debut in January of ’86. The film’s soundtrack was fabulous and OMD’s “If You Leave” was an international hit. I loved Molly Ringwald’s style in this movie and wanted to dress just like her! Of course these memories influenced my creativity when creating for this week’s Pretty in Pink Cupcake Inspirations challenge.

I found a stock photo from the movie to use as my background. I edited it in Photoshop to create a sketchy black and white poster look and found a fun quote to go with it.

I printed everything on white card stock and trimmed. I added some pink and black matting and a little ink on the edges of the card stock for a some 80’s vintage distressing. I also added some hot pink glitter glue on the boutonniere and her earring and a bit of black ribbon for interest.

I’ll look for you in the gallery!
