My first shadow box!

Here is my first entry for the challenge. I was going to wait for my friend to receive this in the mail but it won't get to her before the end of the challenge.

I used almost every file from the Cherry Blossom Collection and I used Label 3 top and bottom from the Strawberry Lane Collection. I "unioned" a bunch of swirly branches together to create the tree. I downloaded and imported an image with the Japanese characters that stand for "Family". I used pearl buttons in pink and ivory, I used gold heat embossing for the butterflies with my stamps from Martha Stewart, the butterflies represent each member of their family. I used a lot of pop dots for dimension and almost everything is inked on the edges. I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "swiss dots" on the top part of the label.

This is my first shadowbox and am really happy and astonished with how beautiful it turned out.

Please leave some love! :)
