Anniversary Shadow Frame

Mom and Dad's 50th is coming up this month and she's busy planning the big party.
She went out and found this old box frame, in need of some touch ups, paint and decorations.
I repainted the inner frame and retouched alot of the gold trimmings.
Tim Holtz' Tattered Florals die cut different materials: Lace,  textured wallpaper, card stock and precut grunge paper for the swirl accents.
The blue flowers were pulled from a silk, hydrangea  flower but pinched together to give it a different look. The rolled flowers are Spellbinders die cut on card stock. (all those white dots on the window are just the lights shining down on it)

I'm still not getting a handle on my camera settings, and this looks way to white. Only the lace should be white, the rest more an antique, creamy white, like the dolls dress inside. The final touches included a lot of pearl flower centers, and pearl stamens placed all about.
Inside is the cake topper they had 50 years ago. It's all now back in her hands, and filled with wedding day memorabilia.
