Small Things - Curtain Retro Sketch!

Small Things - Curtain Retro Sketch!

This was a bear of a card.
I managed to do the top layer of the heart lattice fine 
and transfer and adhere it to the folder
cardstock without dropping out any pieces.
Next, piecing a puzzle of bits of paper how I wanted,
well it was more challenging than I thought.
Since I don't have a stitched square mat from Lil' Inkers, 
I only have the stitched rectangles so I have one side 
My main frustration was lighting.
This card picked up yellows and somehow just would not photograph very well.
So today, as the light was fading I remembered that I might just be 
able to get an ok shot outside.
So here is my best attempt.

Memory Box Lattice Heart Die
Lil Inkers Stiched Rectangles
Stampin Up! Label Punch
Paper Crate DP Papers [Maggie Holmes]
SavvyStamps Sentiment
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Studio Calico Wooden Heart
Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, Ranger Tropical Tangerine Stickles

I was inspired by Wendy Robinson's Sunshine Scrap Card in
Paper Crafts Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters Volume 2

Happy Crafting!

Small quilt, beautiful papers, eye-catching embossing, the perfectly placed special touch heart...sighhhh. I. love. this. Photographing your card outside reinforces how stunning it is; I'm reminded of pretty quilts hanging from my grandma's clothesline, drying in the breeze. Happy sighhh...Yes, stunning...Hugs~c
