I made this display for jo_mama for the Ongoing Wish round 100 swap.  I was inspired by something on her wish list: a crafted butterfly taxidermy shadow box.  This is what I came up with. 



And since she listed Breaking Bad as one of the things she loves in her wish list, I had to come up with a few references to the show in some of the butterfly latin names.   Smiley
