For Sharon Johnson's DTGD2010 Challenge which you can find here.
I started with a chipboard page from a Maya Road book, and covered it with designer paper. All the flowers are made using Spellbinders die templates and Grunge Paper. I covered the Grunge Paper with designer paper before any die cutting. The leaves are made from Grunge Board and inked in Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I stamped the word Dream separately from the rest of the sentiment and put it in an Ornate Plate. From there I covered the word with Glossy Accents to make a dimensional front to the Ornate Plate. The hanger is made from florist wire held by the back of the brads.

Oh WOW do I love this!!!! I love the design of how you arranged the flowers and leaves on the square. I like that the leaves are curled a bit. The hardware is gorgeous!! I will favorite this, but not with the intent on casing it. This is one of a kind, but I would like to reflect back on it. TFS!!
