My 1st wall hanging!

Hi everyone :)

Today, I saw This beautiful wall hanging and had to participate in One stop craft's challenge  which is wall hangings!
I have no idea what people use to make the wall hangings with so I cut out 2 pieces of card and stuck them together and worked from that!
The photo isn't great as I used flash, click it to get a better look.

I think it turned out ok :) Hopefully you can see, I embossed the dp on the left with my cuttlebug and I heat embossed the green part with a stamp I bought and hardly use!  The image is a Sugar Nellie one and Coloured with Promarkers.  I went around the edges of some bits with a gold ink pad.  The sentiment is computer made.  The little sparkly buttlerfly was in a bundle of bits I bought (it's so cute!)  the gems were a bargain from poundland, the ribbon is from the market here and the flower is Prima I think.

I also wanted to join in with some other challenges so made this around them!
Flutterby Wednesday's theme is hearts.  (see the tiny embossed hearts?)
Totally Gorjuss - Flowers
Saturday Challenge - Mothers day
Lots to do - Use a machine.  I used my cuttlebug to emboss and my heat gun to heat emboss
Quixotic -Something for mum!
Fussy and Fancy - Dazzle us!  ( I think the butterfly is rather dazzling!)
There is also a new challenge blog out there!  oh Alice! it's all  because of the new Alice in wonderland coming out soon!  I have to say, I cannot wait! I love Alice in Wonderland!!  I remember Santa giving me one of the books for Christmas and I was such a happy little gir.
I THINK I have done this challenge right, I saw the DTs samples and they are not necessary aimed at Alice (I don't think!).  It's a colour photo inspiration challenge.  As soon as I saw the green I knew what to use!!  I did ignore the black as I wanted a lighter card and also I felt the whole makeup box looks a little bit vintage (To me anyway) so I did a little bit of it on my card too!

Please check out my candy Here!

You make hangings out of anything that wont pull the plaster off the wall because it weighs so much! lol Great work.I can't believe how many challenge sites you take part in!!
I did a little piece on hangings in the current issue of Craft Stamper (pg 34)which might give you some more ideas if you see the mag.
