Heart Hanger

Hello everyone, finally managed to get some crafting done after a ton of accounting work and uni preparations for my daughters who are now both settled in their accommodation.
I have my entry for a couple of challenges to show you. The first is the main focus as it's the colours for PDCC47 of The Play Date Cafe:
Here's the little heart shaped hanger that I made:
The hanger itself is made from a thick piece of recycled card packaging that I cut a heart shape from using a pattern I made. I painted it with turquoise acrylic paint and then stamped with various background stamps (these came courtesy of a dear crafting friend who recently very sadly lost her battle with illness and generously said that her crafting buddies were to take any of her stamps that we could find good use for. Thank you so much for this Phyl, we all miss you loads)
I then added some dotty patterned paper in red and green trimmed with a Martha Stewart dot lace scallop punch. The finishing touches are a flower punched from patterned paper with a button centre, some white crochet lace, a butterfly sticker and the really sweet image which was a free download a while back from Carol Anne's Boutique. Some black and white dotty ribbon made the hanger.
Finally I'm also entering my hanger in Challenge 122 over at A Spoon Full Of Sugar which is Anything Goes.
