The Greatest of these

Some of you may remember my Wizard of Oz inspired card, here, that I made for the Cinema Saturday Challenge a few weeks ago. This week's challenge is from the movie Emma, based on a book of the same name by Jane Austen, written in 1815. I read the book in a women's literature class in college, but had never seen any of the movies based on the book. After seeing the challenge on the blog this week, I went on my Netflix and watched this 1996 version with Gwyneth Paltrow and LOVED IT!

Emma is a natural matchmaker who works her charm to match up couples from her group of friends...never realizing how much trouble one can get into when "involving oneself" in others' affairs ;) It's a fun and clean (!) love story and one I think you would really enjoy!
Here is my inspired card from the movie:

The DP actually has a sheen to it which you are able to see if you enlarge the picture.
I chose this scripture because faith, hope and love were all in the movie! And dancing scenes were some of the most beautiful parts of the movie. For the challenge, the card also had to have dots in it somewhere. My dancers image is from Gina K's Heartfelt Hits 1, which I paperpieced with SEI's dotted, double-sided DP. The scripture is one of many from Cornish Heritage Farms Scripture Essentials I. I also used SU's mellow moss CS and Fiskar's Victorian corner rounder punch. No doubt this card will end up as a wedding or anniversary card somewhere down the line!
I was going for a card that was simple yet elegant....much like Emma, herself :)
Have an amazing week!
