Papertrey Shadowbox

The challenge for the Papertrey Blog Hop this month was to use a CD case in a way other than it was intended. I decided to make a shadowbox. I really love the way it turned out!I used Anna Griffin pattern paper with Papertrey Spring Moss and Pure Poppy cardstock. The sentiment is from Everyday Blessings and is stamped in Pure Poppy. I stamped a flourish from Wedding Day in the center with Spring Moss. I used silk flowers and a brad from Michael's brides collection. The butterfly is stamped with versamark on vellum and embossed with Enchanted Gold embossing powder and punched with the EK Success butterfly punch. The crocheted lace ribbon is from Offray. I used Spring Moss swiss dots ribbon accented with brads at the end and glued to the edge with glue dots.



Thanks for looking!
