Butterfly Shadow Box

I saw the cutest butterfly shadow box at Target that had different color butterflies in it and was $27.  I thought I would love that in Black and White and I could make my own for a lot cheaper.  I already had the shadow box on hand with an old picture in it, so I decided to redo it and I just used black cardstock for the butterflies.  I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the butterflies and bent the wings up to give them dimension.

 Here is a side view where you can see the dimension more.
I am entering this into the following challenges:

Very pretty, Jean! I've got a few shadow boxes but can never think of anything interesting to put in them; butterflies are perfect!
