Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 8

I recently discovered a new challenge blog that I thought was very interesting.
The two creative gals that created it pick a movie
every week for inspiration, fun huh!?!
So this weeks pick was
Miracle on 34th Street!
I love this movie, as most people do. Much like most remade movies I usually enjoy the original just a tad bit better then the new ones, although the remake was cute too. I am not sure why but things seem much more dramatic in black and white. When I was deciding my "take" on the movie I decided to make a black and white card. I started with my snow globe and put Santa's face in it, adding some stickle for snow. Then I created a night time snow scene, I love it in the winter when the snow is fresh and covering the trees, it doesn't look more magical then that! Using my white gel pen I wrote in the word "believe", then I stamped some candy canes around the border. I made a snowflake on black cs background and cut it out, also added a bit of glitter. I never made a black holiday card before so this was fun to get it to look pretty not grim.
The ladies at Cinema Saturday Challenge are giving away some yummie blog candy too so stop over there and say hi!
Or better yet get involved in these challenges!

This is STUNNING! Absolutely STUNNING! I can't get over your handwritten "believe". That needs to be made into a stamp! The black and white is so elegant on this card, and you nailed this challenge. I'm not creative enough when it comes to creating cards from movies, so I am so in awe of your take on this! Exceptional job! Best, Curt

LOVE this! In fact, I might have to CASE it!!! Seriously awesome technique with the gel pen! I was cracking up as I was catching up on your blog here -- your ode to Starbucks should get you some free coffee!! I am also laughing because as I sit and type,I am drinking demon donuts coffee!!! My hubby picked up some beans when he was at the store. I just finished up my Starbucks and - well - Not impressed with DD brand! Gimme Starbucks anyday! So, when do you want to go to coffee!!!?!?! LOL!
