A Million Thanks Shadowbox

Hi Everyone!  Busy,busy,busy!  I'm here today with my Guest Designer entry for the Outlawz Monday Greeting Card Challenge.  I must admit this was a labor of love let me tell you!  And I think it's different from my usual designs, I always admire others work like this but I finally made one myself..  And it's for someone very special too  :)

this view shows the dimension
close up of poem found at The Poetry Pad
Digi is from Teddy Bo and Co. called Teddy Bea #196
I've been playing with the handful of Copics that I have and I colored the bears solely with those.  I used chalks and Prismacolor pencils on the rest of the image.

So here is the completed shadowbox. The paper is 8x8 and I purchased an 8x8 shadowbox for it but, did it fit?  Nooo...of course not!  So I had to cut and hot glue cardboard, etc, etc.  And boy is it hard to take a good pic of it!  

papers - My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper stacks
dies - MFT (bow/fishtail flag/mini scalloped edging border), Spellbinders circle and Memory Box (La Rue Heart and Honeysuckle Vine)

Well thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop and take a peek!

OMGoodness, Kathi, I didn't realize that you were making this into a shadowbox--how fabulous! When I saw the card uploaded I thought how much I loved it--your image is soooo sweet and beautifully colored. The design is gorgeous, pretty papers, fab die cuts, love that bow, and that sentiment is so special--love it! :^)
Hugs, Penny
