Heartfelt Creations- Window Shadow Box Card

Good morning!
We have a cute window scene today with lace curtains and everything!
I've used a scoreboard to create the wainscot half wall.
The pink poinsettias have some glass beads for center (I dyed clear glass beads with a Copic refill).
My water wheel scene inside (the box) is filled with sparkly glitter! 
In the winter at our house when it snows we turn on the outside lights, just sit and watch the flakes fall.  Sometimes the flakes are huge and I wonder how they still fall so slowly and lightly like feathers floating in the air! But small flakes or large, in the morning the scene looks like what you see in the little window I've made with the sparkle and everything (well, no water wheel).
I so absolutely love the paper in this release!  It has such pretty colors and designs. Even though there is pink in this paper there is also red and green so it goes so well with the Festive Holly release as well!

I die cut a deer from the Woodsy Wonderland paper to put inside my shadow box part of the card (hard to see it in this photo).

You dyed clear glass beads with a Copic refill.....well of course you did, because in real life you are a world famous surgeon with the steadiest hands ever!!! Seriously my sweet friend, it is these little details that make your cards masterpieces. I could sit and look at this card all day long, just to take every thing in. The lace curtains are gorgeous, as is every itty bitty inch, inside and outside!!! You are amazing!!!

Oh, Robin, this is amazing! What a beautiful shadow box with stunning and exquisite details. I agree with everything Susie said...and wow, dying the beads with Copic refill...makes sense. But only you would have thought of it and added the exquisite detail like that one...and like the wainscot half wall. You are surely gifted and thanks for sharing this beauty! I love it! Hugs, precious friend! xoxo
