Shadowbox Garden Card

*** I have three posts today-please check out my other projects and  will you vote for me and share my good news***

My project today using Creative Inspirations Paint is something really different then a usual type card.
I decided to make a shadowbox type card.
All the flowers were cut out with a rose die cut my friend had   (SEE STEPH I USED THE SAME ONE)- I decided to use Mango and Citrus paints to accent many of the pieces after I lightly inked the design while it was in the die and then accented with my Spectrum Noir markers.
 I tried to share a few angles so you could see the flowers and the beautiful colors.
Here you can see the dimension of the display card and how I did a three step base in the inside to layer the flowers at different levels.
That beautiful ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is from their Ribbon of the month assortment this month.I believe the decorative brad is from SEI.
The leaves were cut out from dies from Heartfelt Creations and a couple Martha Stewart punches.

I just wanted to take the time to Thank Molly and the design team  at Creative Inspirations Paint-this is my last post as a design team member, I know I will be playing along with the challenges and be back in April for both of the challenges.
I have enjoyed playing and painting everything I could with my paints, glitter, and embossing powders.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Celebrate The Occasion-Welcome Spring
Crafty Bloggers-Floral
Love To Create-Anything Goes
Stamp and Create-paper piecing
Unstampabelles- no stamp ,Easter, extra folds
