Cuttlebug Be Inspired #80 Shadowbox

Hello and welcome to Wednesday. Its time for Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot's BE INSPIRED #80 Challenge. We are to create a SHADOWBOX this week. Anything goes, so long as it is in the form of a shadowbox.

There are lots of awesome tutorials with endless ideas out there....but I chose to go with a shadowbox card for mine with a Military Soldier as the main focal point:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! stamp set called "GODSPEED"
Paper: Heavy textured Cream CS, Brown Bazzill Textured CS, Americana themed Wallpaper.
INK: Brown StazOn, Brown Brilliance. Tim Holtz Distress Inks, COPICS & Marvy LePlume Markers
ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug Stars Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Stars Dies & Lg Pinking Circles, Gold Ribbon, Gold Cording, Gold Star Brads, Gold Flag Charm -->(I cut off end handle and placed it directly on the star with a dimensional glue-dot).
TECHNIQUES: Dry Embossing, Sponging, Distressing
