First Birthday Shadow Box

It was craft night last night, and after a long, cold drink and a Wimbledon Winner biscuit (recipe on my baking blog here), the two of us there were, what with holidays and illness, made shadow box cards.
 Our little great nephew turns one this month so I made a card for him using this cute Lili of the Valley stamp and papers.  The image has, of course, been coloured with Promarkers.
I made the box card out of kraft card and used Papermania stickers to create the large sentiment and a Craftwork Cards die cut for the small one.
The ducks were made with an ancient Xcut die, I hadn't used it in ages, I'd forgotten how sweet they are.  A few blue gems and pearls finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
