Shadow Box card and a goodbye

Sadly, today will be my last post with Sherrod Studio. I have been a member of the DT since the beginning and have decided to step down as I have other commitments at this time taking me in other directions. My thanks to Kim for taking me on to the team and to all of the members who have been so friendly and a pleasure to get to know.

Today's card is a challenge issued by team member Ceal - to create a shadow box card. I have never made one of these before but it was lots of fun - will definitely make one of these again!





















This card features one of the first Sherrod sets - Gracie. She is just so precious, especially holding that sweet teddy.

I paper pieced her with 2 different DPs - one from My Mind's Eye and the other from 3 Bugs in a Rug (I think - I couldn't find the info this paper as it was a scrap). I also colored Gracie and her bear with Copics and the bear was cut out and popped up on foam tape. The buttons were added to the outside frame portion of the shadow box with glue dots.

This card is also being entered in Challenge #11 at Cooking it Up with Katie where the challenge was to create something girlie, using paper piecing and at least 2 DPs. This fits the bill!

If you would like to try a shadow box card and participate with this week's Tuesday Throwdown with Sherrod Studio, you can find directions here. I hope you'll check out what the rest of the DT has created and play along - we would love to see what you create!

Have a creative day!
