Live- Laugh- Love with Cheery Lynn Designs and Core'dinations cardstock


The great swap week with Core'dinations is almost over and I am a last one to show you  all  great things you can craft  combining our precious Cheery Lynn Designs dies and the  great Core'dinations cardstock.
I need to say that we got this cardstock about 2 month ago and it was very generous  of Core people, so I used some of it here and there and even won Core'dinations July contest Sketch lo challenge  and got a huge new pack of MME  very new embossed cardstock to play with together with  3 Sand It tools..
 So here we go this time:
Altered shadow box in a fall and a bit  of vintage style, using some of my home " findings" such as a small  wood bird house and a small handmade hat, but then- all other thing here are hand made just with 2 companies: Cheery Lynn Designs  fantastic dies and Core'dinations fantastic cardstock.
I made the inside with Large Scalloped  Coved Rectangle Nested dies, embossing the inner one with Daisy Garden XL  Embossing plate.
Then the Victorian Picket Fence was die cut and distressed with this great sanding tool- now I have 4 of them, one from the swap and 3 more from my win- LOL..
A pair of Tropical Flourishes  were added  under the fence and 2 Exotic Small Butterflies  #2 over it.
Now it was a time for the frame and I first made 3 strips with Ribbon Eyelet Border and added some ribbon inside and then finished the frame using 2 layers of Border Carnivale- all sanded again.
The right lower corner was a bit empty, so  a Pair of Ferns were die cut and glued over it, with Judi's Blooms  combined with some Darling Daisies and some  smallest Tropical leaves  and I just had to add one more Exotic Butterfly here..
Almost everything was sanded with Sand It Gadget- as I have 4!! of them- LOL.
Did I finish? No, I didn't. The bird house needs a bird, so Bird on a Branch was  die cut and added and now my piece was done (also I added some Petaloo small flowers here and there, some buttons and a metal sign.)
 Here are close ups of this project:

I hope you like my shadow box ..
