Shadow Box Ornament Card

 Mother nature is being so fickle at the moment. The last four months were arid like the Sahara, the past few days have been a monsoon and then a little teaser of cool weather, but oh no....don't get excited, it's back to blistering, no...wait...now it's freezing.
  I'm as confused as a baby in a topless bar!  But one thing I'm certain of, the challenge happening over at Squigglefly where we want to see POLKA DOTS!   Dots, dots n' spots. You got 'em? Then hand 'em over...we can't wait to see what you dream up. 
Here's the card I designed in between running to grab my parka and then speed changing into a swimsuit and then back to bundling up in my snuggie. 
This is a polka dotted shadow box card; which technically, I think is supposed to house the image in the back of the card, but I wanted you to be able to see the detail of  Lynne Stansbery's Ornament 4, so I've suspended it from the front, leaving only a true shadow in the back.  The Christmas floral and berry arrangement are mostly from Tim Holtz's Festive Greenery Die and a MS snowflake punch.
Ornament was colored in Derwent Watercolor pencils, highlighted with dots of stickles and ribbon glazed in clear accents.  
 
Please join us for some Dot fun at Squigglefly!
And while you're there, stop in and say hi to the wonderful DT and our new artist to the team Keith Williams. 
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...

That is CRAZY wicked fun!!! Too cool!!
That MS punch is the end of my right arm at Xmas time! Can't do anything without it! I have another kind, too, but it never works right for me. This is the ONE!

I like it just the way you did it. A shadow is a shadow. :-) The different mediums you've used look so good together. It almost looks enameled. Stay warm, I mean cool, I mean dry.....I mean close to the closet! LOL Hugs Twang!
