Shadow Box & Pretty In Pink

I started a shadow box several weeks ago and have just started to decorate it. I will show it in it's various stages of completion - it may take a while!! Here is one of the sections:

The flower is a sunflower cut on the Silhouette. I am going to use glossy accents on the Butterflies and the flower middle just to get them to stand out a little. I have decided to keep the colour scheme quite neutral at the moment so it will all be in browns / creams / greens.

Here is how it looks in place:

All the edges will be decorate when it is finished but for now that is one slot done five left to go.

I have been blog hopping for a few months now and the list of things I have bookmarked to try is expanding. Now that the Christmas cards are out of the way I have decided to make a start and have a go at some of the projects I have seen. So, a big thank you to everyone who has posted tutorials etc and I will link all the projects back to the original crafty creators.

Here is a Birthday card I have made for a work colleague. You can see the original card made by Janine here: Crafting Crackers

You may have recognised the flower - its that sunflower again. I just think it makes a lovely flower whatever colour it is cut in.

Here is what was used:

Base card: Neenah Solar White from Crafters Companion
Backing paper: Sweet Owl 8 x 8 paper pad (The Range)
Pink gems
