Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #73- Sense and Sensibility

Every Saturday, over at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog, we pick a movie from which to create a card from. This week for our 73rd movie challenge we are featuring the movie Sense and Sensibility which was nominated for 7 Oscars and won for best screenplay adaptation by Emma Thompson, who also acts as Elinor Dashwood in the movie. This movie is simply a beautiful love story, not just of romance, but also the love of family and the love of sisterhood. If you haven't seen this movie yet, and you also love Jane Austen and period movies - you will absolutely love this movie!!! The challenge requirement for this movie is to create a CAS card (which stands for clean and simple because this movie has tones that are muted and simple and elegant lines - so have fun creating a card that is simple and clean and is inspired by the themes in this movie!!
I don't know how many times I have watched this movie - it must be over 50 times - its just beautiful to watch it again and again. I love this version with Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant the best. My card was inspired by the dresses that Elinor wore - I love the dark rich blues and muted earth tones that she wore and I was imagining the flower as something that they would wear in their hats.. The sentiment is from the stamps set "Feel the Sun" and is from Verve stamps and reads: "To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides" and is inspired by the scene where Edward declares his love for Elinor and the love that they both have felt for each other but have had to hide in their hearts due to different circumstances - finally has a chance to shine through - it is such a sweet moment and Emma Thompson's acting is so real in that moment - I get a wee bit teary eyed every time :) sigh...

Card Details:
Paper: Basic Grey and Prism cardstock
Ink: Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa from Memento
Accessories: Corner rounder, liquid pearls, pearl, circle punch, gel pen, ribbon from May Arts

I simply adore this movie, it just has so many sweet little love stories within it and I loved Alan Rickman as Col. Brandon - and the way he cares for Marianne just always touches my heart.

Please check out the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog for more details and I hope you will play along with us to this beautiful movie!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
