Aurora Wings Challenge Blog #26: Make a Wish

Happy Sping everyone!!! The sun is shining here and its already a balmy 10C outside at 9am!! I love this time of year!! I have another shadow box to show you today.. the last 1 I promise!! My boss has been bugging me for a piece of art to display in the restaurant. We have contract with one of the local art galleries to display local artists work on our wall and for some reason that crazy woman thinks I should be up there too! Lol! Although I doubt mine will sell for anything near what the other artists are selling for it still fills me heart that she would ask!
So without further ado I give you:

A little closer up...

Without any glare off the glass...

 A close up of the sentiment-- I picked this because to me the image is very dream like!! The days of masquerades is long gone especially in gorgeous ball gowns like this! And if its not-- its way to rich for this family! LOL

A close up of just the image

First mat...
