Shadowbox Picture For Mom's Flowers

My mother LOVED flowers and LOVED the color blue. So, my sister and I chose a spray of blue, white and yellow flowers for her viewing service. For blue we chose mainly iris.

Well, we each took home a few of the iris with the thoughts of pressing or drying them for keepsakes purposes.

I decided that I wanted to dry my iris and then add them to a shadowbox to preserve them. I wanted her prayer card to be the center focus with the dried florals surrounding it.

Unfortunately, I didn't have enough iris for the shadow box so I decide to add some dried roses from some of the birthday bouquets that hubby had given me.

The colors blended well and I was pleased with the way it turned out.
