I wish it were summer!

Well, what's wrong with a bit of wishful thinking? Particularly when it is due to snow tonight!

I made this shadow box by reversing a deep canvas, painting it and framing it with Tim Holtz tape, attaching the background paper (from DCWV) and then adding the embellishments. The moths and and flowers were all made using Paper Artsy dies and stamps. I coloured the inside of the little bottle with alcohol ink and rolled up the paper to put inside it and, lastly, added the letters at the top.
