Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: Sense and Sensibility

Ok those of you who know me know I LOVE period movies.... So I was over the moon to make a card about Sense and Sensibility. In this movie I probably relate to a mix of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood.. I was the oldest of 4 girls, always did the right thing and was reliable and dependable I even had a few little trinkets that I would hold onto that belonged to one or two somebody's special.. But as I get older I find I have the same qualities but with the spunk on Marianne.. It just comes with age I guess..

I {HEART} the costume of this time period... The colors and wall papers are simple but elegant as well. When I saw this pattern paper I new it would be a perfect match for color and design.. I then though I needed a simple but elegant ribbon to represent some of the activities like hat haberdashery(hat making) and needle work ladies would do all day if they were privileged. Finished by a simple but elegant button that might be found on there clothing or shoes.

Don't forget to stop by and leave me some love.. I have a little surprise about some of the actors in this movie you might like to know about..

Hope you enjoy one of my all time favorite movies...


Sankari's Card inspired by the movie: Sense and Sensibility
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 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...
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. I hope you will play along with us to this beautiful movie!
You can check out more details on my blog :)
