Baby Boy Blue

Thank you, thank you all for the wonderful comments on my last post.  I feel so humble, you are all stars, boosted me up no end.  I thought with my sporadic posts that I may loose your following, but no, I received lots of comments.  I forgot to mention that I did not design the card, it was one Nancy Watt showed on a Create and Craft show, sorry if you thought it was all my own work.  As Mr Mojo had deserted me I decided to try her design because it is so lovely.

Patricia dared me to post the shadow box (well thats what I call it) I made and feel I could have made it stand out more by decoupaging the giraffe a bit.  I intend decorating the frame but have to decide what with.

As I said previously the boxes were a bargain, the giraffe and words were cut with the silhouette Cameo. The flowers from Wild Orchid crafts and the ribbon from my stash.  

First attempt, I get excited and rush ahead without thinking too much. On seeing my completed box I can see how it can be improved.  Embossing the background, layering the giraffe and adding a bit of bling here and there.

I am having problems getting Blogger to load on my PC, keep getting an error messages so I am
having to use my IPad to post this. Hope I can get it resolved soon.

Once again thank you so very much for your much appreciated comments.

Take care.

  14. Hi Wilma,
    the shadow box looks really super to me. I don't think it needs anything more, but if you feel it does then you go ahead. The recipient will be sooooooooo! pleased with it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
