Blogger Craft Challenge

Louise over at Beachy's Cap Code Cupboard put out a Challenge to create an item using this vintage picture. This time around I decided to do a shadow box of special items from the wedding. I've included this picture, a reduced copy of the invitation cover,lace from the brides handkerchief, pearls, a representation of the bridesmaids flowers, ribbon from the bouquet, and odd bits of wedding day jewellery. I had a difficult time trying to get a good photo with the glass reflecting, these two are the best of the lot. The first one with flash and the second without. You can click on the picture for a larger view.
