The Fault in our Stars
Briefly, the book is about two teens who meet in a cancer support group. They are both fans of a reclusive author who lives in Amsterdam, and one of the teens uses his "Make-a-Wish" to get them a trip to Holland so they can beet the author. At that point, he gives the girl a bouquet of orange tulips as a hint. So I made this card with a bouquet of orange tulips.
While the book may sound depressing, it's not -- it does have sad moments, but it has hilarious moments as well. So, the sentiment "Live as if everything is a miracle" seemed appropriate.
For this card, I used Feeling Sketchy Sketch 91, but I angled the strips to leave lots of room to draw attention to my lovely sentiment.
Any paper with color is a snippet; I chose two oranges plus an orange print; the orange plaid turned out to be a brilliant idea when I realized I could use a little contrasting blue to make the whole thing a little less "aggressively orange" (which is how I think Hazel, the heroine, describes that bought of tulips).
I have not seen the movie yet -- if you have, what did you think of it?
