Its hard to believe that  its  the  6th Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping.
This time we are asking that you show us 'Anything but a Card'.
There are some absolutely fabulous examples made by the fashionettes , so pop over please, take a look and get all the information.
My hanging was made from the sides of two old ribbon reels.
The stamps are  Stampotique and Stampers Anonymous.
Shading  is antique linen and Shabby shutters Distress inks, with my favourite cosmic shimmer watercolours.
The lace etc are from my stash.

I think this may also fit the Stampmans new challenge  'Circle it'.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
