Shadow Box Card

Oops, I just realized that I only posted once last week.  So sorry!  I HAVE been creating, just haven't been taking pictures and posting. 

I got this card in a swap.  I love the 3-D'ness of it.  

Designed by Linda Black

I also thought the finishing touches of having the shark bite the sign and using Waxy Flax as the jellyfish tentacles was inspired!

I have wanted to make this type of card for a long time.  (I printed out the directions over four years ago.)  For my own card, I thought the Stamp of the Month would work perfectly.
