Shadow Box using VDBC #CD00807

I am a board member for a Dental Coalition in the county where I reside.  We are trying to develop resources for adults who cannot afford dental care because improper dental care can lead to so many other health concerns.  I made this shadow box for a silent auction for the Dental Coalition. I used a Visual Designs by Chris file #CD00807 Tending My Garden.  However, I totally cut up the file for the hearts.  *smile*  I cut them out of white cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them.  I used some old stash of Heidi Swapp photo corners so whoever wins it can interchange the photos as they desire.  FAMILY are chipboard letters that I'd had forever as well.  The flowers are a mix of Prima and a silk flower arrangement from Hobby Lobby.  The butterfly is a Sizzix die and embossing set.  I added a Tim Holtz safety pin for the body and a little chalk to the body for texture.  Some bling for the flight pattern.  All of the patterned papers were from a DCWV (I think) pack from Michaels.  K&Co. Fabric brads and HL jeweled brads.  I stamped LOVE LOVE LOVE on the hearts and used stickers for THIS LIFE on some banners created with a Stampin' Up punch.  A little ribbon and a string of pearls and I'm calling this done.  The shadow box itself was from Hobby Lobby (great use of a 40% off coupon!)
