Anything but Cards is the challenge this time, so I created 
a hanger, by turning a big wonderful White Greyboard from That`s Crafty , on the tip.

I used the big Flower stencil to add texture in every corner, using Gesso ,
sprayed with Infusions,

Added one of Tim Holz paperdolls ,

and painted lovely Embellishments og flowers , and butterflies with Shimmer Paints 
using a little gesso to brighten some of the colors. 

Laces and fabrics were also spray colored with Infusion , and added to the background
together with buttons and the embellishments.

Here you see the beautiful shimmer from the green color . 
I stamped them with : Butterfly Trio stamp

You can find almost all the materials over at 
That`s Craft shop :

Hope you enjoyed  :-)
And remember , if you want to take part and create your own Challenge piece,that 

The winner of the Challenge will receive a £20 voucher to spend in our online store.

Just hop over to read the rules, and go play :-) 

Hugs and love Dorthe

I do like the diamond rotation of the greyboard - gives it a whole new look compared to a square - so simple, yet such a great idea. Love your vintage neutrals (of course), and incredible textures here. The twins looks as though they are having a wonderful time in the magical flower garden you've created for them. Lovely!

There is so much to look at in your work. I love your eye for detail. the textures in this are especially nice.
Thank you for stopping by my place. I am curious as to which "envelopes" you were indicating in your nice comment. I'd dearly love to know. This would help me to choose wisely what to offer in the future.
Rose xoxo

I have read your email just now, Dorthe. Thank you for the sweet compliment on my ATC envelopes! I've often wondered in what ways people have chosen to use those envelopes. Was it the calligraphy one that you liked the most?
xoxo Rose
