A Shrine to the Bowling Queen

I stumbled upon this image the other day and had nearly forgotten that I made this a few years ago for a Craftster swap -- which is kind of sad since I really loved making this piece! My swap partner was an avid bowler who lived in Oklahoma, thus the theme.

I made this from a Masonite shrine kit -- Masonite is a material that feels like wood and looks like wood, but I don't think it's all wood. It's a nice weight for making shrines, though. The gold was created with a gilding pen I had, and the image was from a piece of scrapbook paper I had kicking around. The bowling ball and pins are stickers, and the bling is self-explanatory. 

I love the atomic brad up at the top. I have a few of those left, and have been hoarding them. You never know when you'll need to make another retro bowling shrine!
