Heart songs 45

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! While the Simon Says staff are attending the Craft and Hobby Show, looking for amazing products to fill their store, this week's challenge theme is Anything Goes. I had fun creating a Vintage themed burlap panel wall hanging:
I covered the burlap panel with a collage of Ephemera and French Industrial papers. Then added one of the sweet images from Winged Things:
Then I surrounded by a cluster of embellishments including: Viola Sprouts, Bitty Blossoms and Mini Flowers. For a hint of color, I applied Broken China Distress Ink and Gold Metallic paint to the flowers and sweet image.
I finished it off with a beautiful Spellbinders Media Mixage embellishment:
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
Be Sweet ;)

How did I miss this?! Some of my favourite colours, wonderful burlap texture and embellishing - especially that mixage piece. Love the higgledy piggledy patchwork, the little girl, those die-cut flowers - well, pretty much all of it really!

How cute is this wall hanging, Mona?!! VERY CUTE! I adore the colors but then, I love anything resembling teal! :) I love your paper patchwork background. That looks so cool against the burlap. I also love your added metallic embellishments. What wonderful texture and dimension they add. Your winged girl...love her, too. The sweet little bow and flowers add such a softness and shabby feeling to your piece. Love it! <3 Candy
