Anything But a Card

Good morning to all my lovely Friends and Followers. Also a very special welcome today to my new follower Jackie thank you for taking the time to follow my blog I hope you enjoy my posts.
 My post today is my first design team post for Crafting By Designs so a special welcome if you are visiting my blog for the first time from Crafting by Designs.
The Challenge this week is Anything But a Card. I'd bought a kraft card heart a while ago at the craft shop in Whitby North Yorkshire so decided to make use of it and make a wall hanging. I hope you all like it.

The second photo shows the side of the wall hanging which is not visible from the front and  the photo below shows it hanging on the wall.

I also used white gesso to prime the base of the heart before decorating it.

I hope this inspires you to join in the challenge it can be fun to do something other than a card so why not give it a go and be in with the chance of winning some great prizes. This is the challenge badge and link. The Challenge runs from the 28th May for a week.
