A Torn frame Shadow Box Card

Good Morning, hope all is well where you are. Remember those sugar eggs with the scene inside, oh my goodness, I could stare at those for hours as a child. It was the dimension that fascinated me and continues to this day. This is a 6"X6" card, the background paper BoBunny Press "Flutter Butter", the inside background was stamped with the Tim Holtz branches and a Delta Butterfly. The rabbit is cut from Cricut Cartridge "Everyday Paperdolls". The oval frame was created with the large Nestie, I then torn the edges and did a light dusting of glitter. I off centered the oval to the right because the pattern is so heavy on the right side and then off set the bow to the left, a little charm butterfly dangles from the bow. The butterflies on the outside of the shadow box are the same Delta Stamp. All colors were done with Copic Markers and the Copic Airbrush System.

this is a side view so you can see the depth of the shadowbox. Have a great Thursday, Hugs

Yes, those sugar eggs used to fascinate me also. I had one that I kept for years. I am surprised the ants didn't get it! I always wanted to eat it but Mama wouldn't let me. This is a great card and I love how you always tell what you did. Thanks!!!

This is so adorable Sandi....I was looking at our challenge over at The PDCC and thinking 'I bet Sandi could do something awesome with this challenge' and realized it had been awhile since I stopped by.

Nice to see you again : )
