Shadow Box Layout - Indian Style

This layout was created using the 'Taj Mahal' stack from Provo Craft. The papers were perfect as this is a wedding gift and the paper truly depicts the vivid colors that are found in Indian weddings. Flowers are cut using Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz. Vines are from a Sizzix die. The trim around the frame is an old lace I got from India.
