Shower's of Blessing :)

So a dear friend of mine was getting married! I have known Annie for about 15 years, we have laughed together, cried together, gotten in all kinds of mischief together, not to mention crafted together. When Annie's sister got married I made Cara a wedding scrapbook. Since I know Annie does do some scrapbooking I didn't want to take that joy away from her so I decided to create something different.

I decided to make a shadow box frame for her. I wanted to keep with the colors/them of the wedding and so I used a very elegant black and white patterned paper. Her accent color (and the dressed of the bridesmaids were pink) so I matted the photo area in pink, black and a touch of silver. The information of the wedding as well as the verse below, was printed on vellum then layered over black card stock. Finally to add a touch of bling I used Prima flourishes in both of rhinestone and then took the flowers from their "say it in pearls" flourishes to give me a touch of pink within the bling. The final accent was a cross button for a subtle touch of faith within the flourish.


I was quite pleased with how it turned out but more importantly Annie LOVED IT and couldn't wait to be able to put a wedding photo in it!
