LLC December Challenge: Anything but a Card

Hi there,
I do find it hard to believe that it’s December the 1st today, but that’s what my computer says, so I better believe him. The computer is always right… 🙂
This means that today we are not only kicking off with a new challenge over at the Live & Love Crafts’ Inspiration and Challenge Blog, but also our Advent Calendar, which will run Dec 1st-24th. Each day a new Christmas project and Christmas Candy!

Saturday is my day to post, so I’m premiering later today, but first now my project for the challenge. This time we’ve got a slightly more challenging theme than last month (Christmas) as we would like to see “Anything but a Card“. However, there are loads of gorgeous inspiration by the DT and our two GDTs Wendy and Lizzi, so please pop over and check it out. Would be great if you could join us; you have the whole month to link up your project and you’ll be in the running of winning a Store Voucher for LLC.
Anywho; I tend to make mostly cards so with non card projects I’m always a bit out of my comfort zone… 😳 and the truth is I had to think long and hard before I came up with something for this challenge, but here it is; a door hanger with an Inspirational Sentiment from Vilda Stamps.
Apologies; the picture quality is rather poor, but it was very difficult to take pics of this hanger despite the fact that I was using my spots, just because it’s so large. It’s A4 size.
The papers are from Maja and Pion Design, the beautiful image from Inkido. I placed the image on a puzzle piece; I’ve had those for ages; they are always looking angrily at me when I open the drawer… 😉 The flowers I cut out from the paper sheet (Rose 12×12).
In case you were wondering about the shape, I googled for “Arch Template”, found a pic, blew it up to desired size in PSE, printed it off and then cut my backing cardboard/papers into shape. Here are some close ups:
Anything goes – #81 Tags
Creative Card Crew – Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown – Lots of Layers
Stampavie & More – Anything but square
Sugar Creek Hollow – #40 Distressing

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Now please take a moment and go and check out the rest of the DT’s creations.
