You should have arrived here from Lelia, but in case you want to go from the beginning, the hop order is included below.

 

I made a shadow box card using Simply Betty's Little Usher Miller and Make It Crafty's Watching Movies. It's quite a big colouring as the card is A5 sized, and I made some filmstrip ribbons of paper to cover the frame. I've left it pretty simple, it was mainly about the images and the colouring.

Image is sunk about half an inch into the card

Here are the other stops in the hop:
Carole (you are here!)

Hope you like my card, and don't forget to leave a comment if you're following the blog hop.

Happy crafting!
