Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #41

So, I've never participated in a Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge on Twilighttuesday.com before but after seeing so many of the awesome creations by Jacquie on her blog ~ Family & Crafting ~ I finally decided to play along. This challenge was from Eve... "It’s complicated….we all know that. I mean really could you choose? Well for some of us it is easy {Edward for me!} However, for Bella it is a little more difficult. Jacob fills that void {or hole} while Edward is gone. And does a pretty good job at it. It is complicated and for sure- a love triangle at it’s best. Is Jacob more of a brother type figure? Or do you see Bella falling into love with Jacob while Edward is gone? There are so many angles to this triangle…….."
For craft challenge:
Make a card {or other item} that represents the love triangle between Bella, Edward, and Jacob.
This card came into my mind easier than any card I've ever made ~ it was just there after I had blog hopped thru the Twilight Tuesday's talented Designers... & listening to 15 Step by Radiohead that was playing on Jacquie's blog (BTW, my dd thanks you for making me buy the song from iTunes.... )
So ~ does the card have the Twilight feel to you? Do you see the triangle? I guess I should explain how it's in my mind.... Edward is the Blue heart ~ representing his 1900 time period w/Smooch to show is glistening vampire skin; Jacob is the Yellow sun & Bella is the Brown (her eyes & hair) deer ~ the object of both of E & J's affection ~ just as the deer was the object of the hunt in the beginning of the movie... & the brown words are how Bella feels towards them. Plus, each image is ever so slightly overlapping & intertwined... Also, if you'll notice the brown paper edging is torn when it overlaps the blue & the yellow ~ as she is torn in her feelings... the deer is walking towards Edward but looking over her shoulder towards Jacob... and the green ribbon is the meadow where she was with Edward & later where Jacob ended up saving her...
