A Mom's Shadow Box

A while back I found this awesome tutorial on the Scor-Pal blog.  It was for a shadow box made from a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock.  I fell in love with it and had to try it for myself. 
Here is a view for the front, when it is closed.  I made the shadow box and then covered the front and with an extra piece of cardstock and patterned paper.  Then I embellished the cover.  The flowers are from Prima and all were originally white (with the exception of the little yellow rose).  I used glimmer mist to add color.  The sprayer on my red mist was clogged so I used a paint brush instead. 
Here's the inside.  I made two shadowboxes using the tutorial found here.  For the banner pieces I used some chipboard shapes from Maya Road's as the template and cut the shapes from patterned paper.  I wanted this to be able to close flat so didn't want to use chipboard.
