Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 6 - Gone With the Wind

There sure are alot of you who guessed that today's movie pick was Gone with the Wind - it was so much fun to read everyone's comments as they were guessing what the movie was from the sneak peek that Brooke posted yesterday. Gone with the Wind is a 1939 movie that was adapted to the silver screen from Margaret Mitchell's 1937 Pulitzer Award winning novel.. since then it has sold over 30 million copies. One of the most famous lines in cinematic history is the one delivered by Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) to Scarlett O 'Hara (Vivien Leigh): "Frankly, my dear - I don't give a damn." This line was declared by the American Film Institue to be the number one movie line of all time!!

I based my card on this line - on the front of the card it says: "Frankly my dear..." but then on the inside of the card it says: "you had me at hello.." which is a line from Jerry McGuire --- but it just cracked me up to splice in movie lines from different eras... :). I used the fun sketch from Kazan of 2 Sketches 4 U for this card - it was such a fun sketch :)The second card was inspired from the scene with Scarlett resolving to move forward into tomorrow... looking into the sunset. I love the silhouette and so I used that for the inspiration for this card that reads: Celebrate the Dawn - everyday is filled with possibilities and every moment holds infinite possibilites and wonder.

These cards were so much fun to make. Come on and join the fun - you can check out our Cinema Saturday challenges here. You have till Thursday to upload it! Can't wait to see your masterpieces !!!

Thanks so much for visiting!!!
Sunny smiles and hugs to all!
Sankari :)
