A Wall Hanging

For another of my DT samples I decided to make a wall hanging with one of the Fabric Companions from the new Crafter's Companion Destinations CD.


I printed out the Fabric Companion, cut it into three equal parts and inked the edges before adhering it to my base which was made from mountboard.  I also added some additional elements from the CD to embellish - you could also use it as a small notice board.

I would like to enter my wall handing into the following challenges:

Crafty Time May Challenge - Anything New (new CD)
All Crafts Challenge April/May - Anything But a Card
Pile It On Challenge 69 - Not Cute
Party Time Tuesdays Challenge 198 - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet Challenge 112 - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.
