Shadow Box


Heather (Rica's Haven) has done a great tutorial on how to make a shadow box.
Here is my attempt. Heather's instructions are excellent and I am pleased with the result.
I have used a lovely border sheet from a K&Co pad to decorate the front. I have managed to line the inner sides and as this was quite a fiddle I would stick the paper on at the beginning 'when' I do another :-)

A seam binding bow and a small bouquet to finish.
I am thinking of adding a sentiment/greeting bottom right and it will be perfect for my daughter's birthday.

I hope this qualifies as a fun fold for
Meljen'sChallenge #44
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge # 60  is  - Say it with Roses
Top Tip Tuesday #21 - Frame it - I hope you think this looks like a frame

Thank you for stopping by and all those lovely comments on recent posts - so much appreciated :-)
Cheers me dears

Ooh, ooh, ooh Irene! I love and adore this (no, really!!)
Every time I look at your blog I realise how much I miss making vintage cards, I must get some done soon (the cuties are taking over)
As you can't remember where you got this from, can you give me any clues where I can get similar vintage ladies?
