Shadow Box card

My desktop computer is very ill and in my little Indian technician's words this morning - it is still on the operating table and he cannot get the temperature down! So I asked him to give it a transplant - that is - a new motherboard!! I know dust and heat are the killers of computers and believe me, it has seen its share of that before we shifted!

So I am on the laptop and am lost without my usual photo editing program etc. We have seen very little sun here for the last who knows how long and this photo is not the best so I apologise.

I bought some coloured vellum and couldn't wait to make some vellum flowers as I saw on Selma's blog here! She does some wonderful work and readily shares her knowledge. Thank you Selma too for the idea of this shadow box card. She also has some of these on her blog. The butterfly has been dusted with SU Dazzling Diamonds over 2 way glue. The leaves are punched out of vellum using a Carl punch.

Card: Stampin' Up Whisper White and Pretty In Pink
Ink: Versamark
Stamp: Stampin' Up
Other: Martha Stewart Punches, Stampin' Up Border punch Pinking Hearts, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Oval Nestabilities dies, Kaisercraft pearls, white satin ribbon from stash
