We're Back!

Oh how I've missed the Cinema Saturday challenges over the holidays but we're back this week with a challenge based on "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." Now, while I'm familiar with the story and the cartoon version of the film from the 70's or 80's, I haven't yet seen this version (though it has been added to my Netflix queue.) By the way, Sankari and Brooke, are you getting residuals from Netflix or at least a free membership? A good percentage of my rentals lately have been directly influenced by this challenge! :)

Anyway, the colors on this card were inspired by winter in Narnia but I didn't want to make the card Christmas-y because it is never Christmas there. I settled on this great glitter background paper with wintry trees touched with a bit of required sparkle. I added a sheer white ribbon and some stickles in the corners just for a tad more iridescence.

I chose the sentiment as I thought about the journey the children were on in Narnia. While much of what they went throug was scary, they also were befriended by a lot of creatures (Mr. Tumnus and Mr. and Mrs. Beaver) on the way to their final destination - the battle where Aslan defeats the White Witch. Since my husband's motorcycle accident last month, I'm constantly reminded to live for each and every day since we just don't know what tomorrow will bring.
