Mother's Day Shadow Box Card

Woohoo! I have FINALLY finished this project.
You would not believe how long it's taken me -
and it nearly went in the bin a few times!!
It's the first time I have used this type of flower, and I had loads of trouble with the glue.
My silicone didn't seem to want to stick, but after 3 attempts,
(and lots of screaming ) those flowers aren't going anywhere!!
Thanks again to everyone who left me a post helping me out with the glue.
It's also the first time I have made a shadow box card, but it was very easy to do, following the fabulous tutorial, from Tanja, at Stempeleinmaleins
This is a great card to make, and it does fold up to fit into an envelope,
but with my added flowers I decided to make a box for it.
Thanks to Lorraine for her box tutorial, where all I had to do was alter the dimensions to fit my card.
I am entering this project for the challenge at Totally Papercrafts, where the theme this week is
Mother's Day/Special Lady.
And also for the Mother's Day/Girly, Simon Says challenge.
Here in the UK it's Mother's Day on Sunday, so if you need some inspiration check out these challenge blogs and the fabulous DT work.
Shadow Box Card - Design Paper, Papermania Capsule Collection, Heather.
Stamps - Magnolia, Summer Background coloured with watercolour paints,
Wooden Gate and Flower Tilda coloured with Copics.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
For the box I have used the same DP, with more flowers.
The hearts were cut from a template and the text was stamped with
My Sentiments Exactly, Adrienne's.
