Shabby Chic Sun Hanger

Created this with a Sun theme & Shabby Chic style in mind. I should say that I started out not sure what I was creating and then ideas kept flowing and I'm pleased with the outcome.

Used Stitchy Bear digi, Sun Signs1. Embossed a layer with sun rays. Embellished with white puffy craft on top to look like clouds. Stamped a Darcie's sentiment. Added a sun button. Added black & white flowers won from DL.ART Mother's Day Challenge. Distressed edges with Tim Holtz walnut stain. Added ribbon for hanger part. Used Kraft crdstock as base.
