Shadowbox Stepper Card 2 - Traditional Style

Well I've been card making again and this time it was for my Aunts 90th Birthday.
I wanted to make the card in a more traditional style as I know elderly ladies usually prefer this.

I built my card base and shadow box in the same way that I had constructed my previous card but this time used some soft pink patterned paper from my stash. I then added some foiled sentiments to the steps, a spray I put together using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some silver mesh bling around the edge of the Shadow Box. I made up a pretty dragon fly from netting, wire and pearls  which I adhered to the side of the box.

I cut the numbers from silver card using my Fiskars Shape cutter and then adhered rhinestones all over them. I then attached them to a circle of the same paper I had used for the shadow box which had been die-cut using the Spellbinders Nestabilites die "Eyelet Circles" I then attached this to a larger circle of silver miri card which was cut using a larger die from the same set.
