its a wonderful life

I'm in an ATC swap for our favorite Christmas movie. Originally I really wanted to find an old Dr. Seuss Grinch book to tear up to make my ATC's. We always watch it and it is so fun and whimsical. I looked high and low at every thrift shop around to no avail. So, I gave up because I was up against the deadline. I relied on another favorite holiday movie. I decided to try to depict It's a Wonderful Life in some way. This is the result. Do you remember the last scene that shows the christmas tree in black and white and a little bell on it rings? There is tinsel on the tree, too. So, here is my best shot at it with what I had here. It's from my memory as it's been almost a year since I last watched the movie.

"Everytime a bell rings an angel gets his wings."

Supplies used: Hero Arts stamps, Nick Bantock charcoal grey ink, Ranger silver embossing powder, Sakura gelly roll pen, ivory and grey cardstock, silver wired trim.

Tami, I just love this! How wonderful! I know it is an ATC but if you don't mind I think I may work on something similar in card form.

Beautiful work!

Love the movie, and have loved the Grinch cartoon since I was a child. They are both must-sees during the holiday season! Great ATC!
