Vintage Shadowbox and Card for 100 year old Great Aunt


This weekend we celebrated my great aunt Ora's 100th birthday.  We weren't supposed to bring gifts but I wanted to make something for her showcasing her 100 years as a surprise.  My uncle sent me some pics he had of her as a young child and young woman and I used Bo Bunny paper.  I  used Storybook font and aged with Glimmer Mist and Tim Holtz ink.  I also made a card to match.  She was thrilled and the shadowbox was placed on the table where everyone signed in so that people could see the pictures of her.
