Is it a Card? Is it a Wall Hanging??..

Here is a little close up of these cuties, it's a gloomy day as
you can probably tell from theses piccies!!!

...in fact it can be both!

I used an old curtain ring and stitched the ribbon through
it. I have used two ribbons for this effect.

Here is a before and after picture, as the tag is so
big it's hard o make out the sketch!

..Hello and happy Tuesday to you all, here is a card I made
today which I think will be Hubby's Christmas card. Don't you
think this little Sugar Nellie image is just adorable?

you can purchase it along with lots of other fab stamps
from Funky Kits . I am going to enter this into the
Sugar Bowl Challenge 24 which is this fab sketch by the
very talented Marlene, (if you are ever stuck for inspiration
just pay a visit to her blog)! she also asks for Zig-Zag to be
somewhere on your card. So for this card I have used DP
Basic Grey, Archaic, I have hand drawn all of the hearts and
hand drawn the zig- zag pattern then cut them out with
Pinking Shears, I have also used these on the three strips of
paper across the middle of the card. Ribbons, heart pearls
are from stash, smaller hearts done using a punch and then
distressed with an old emery board, sentiment if from FF,
stamped with Memento in Cottage Ivy, I think that everything,
Happy Crafting and TFL Sue xx

Sue, this is a masterpiece and I think it could be a wall hanging -- even though it is also a delightful card. Thanks for sharing.
