In the heartlight of an angry sun


Today's post, the first of the day, is a card made from lots of scraps ...
I probably should have titled it Two Tickets to Paradise !

This was based upon a sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch ...

I did take a couple of side roads getting there, didn't I !

It is also going out to Shopping Our Stash - 3 or more designer papers

As I said, a lot of little pieces from a left-over bin under my crafting table.

The heart is a flimsy tin piece that came attached to a gift basket from Bath & Body Works.  I have had this for more than 10 years, maybe even 20 ?  Used it in a couple other projects, and now it will end its life as a card for someone special.  Yes, a long and happy life - her brothers and sisters perished long long ago.

I smeared some paint on the heart, and wiped it away, did a little sanding on it, and it turned out pretty close to what I had wanted ...  Surprise surprise !
