Every Time a Bell Rings... Day 3: Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas Link Up Party

Hello everyone.  So glad you stopped by today, because I want to share another fast but elegant Christmas card with you for Day 3 of the Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas Link Up Party.

Can you guess which movie I was thinking of when I made this card?  (Answer below)
This is an A2 size card from dark bronze metallic card stock.  The next layer is a piece of light pink metallic card stock that I embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder, die cutting the edge of it to match a second piece of die cut white metallic card stock.
After first die cutting the Florentine Bells from the white metallic card stock, I cut a second piece from gold metallic, cutting only the bells.  This was layered on top of the white, and adhered to the front.
I punched a snowflake from a scrap of the white metallic card and adhered.
I computer-generated the first part of the sentiment onto another scrap of the white card, which I punched into an oval shape to layer on top of the larger dark bronze metallic label.
I computer-generated the sentiment for the inside of the card.
A few extra embellishments were added to finish it off.

Supplies:  Pearlized Cardstock (Paper Studio); Snowflake Punch (Emagination Crafts);  Florentine Bells die (Tattered Lace); Scalloped Borders Two die (Spellbinders); Resin Flowers (Prima Vintage Trinkets); Fiskars corner edge punch; Vintage Label punch (McGill)

Answer:  It's a Wonderful Life (as if you didn't know)  (LOL)
