A hanging thingy !

Putting together a number of techniques, I've made a hanging thingy very influenced by Hels, right down to the beaded fringe and including hearts for her Sunday Stampers challenge this week. I've said this before but if you haven't seen her blog and the things she makes you should!
I've also managed to include all the ingredients for the Ready, Steady, Stamp challenge: green, copper and sand; children; heat embossed metal; die-cut; funky foam. (Vis ton rêve = live your dream)
Used: mountboard pieces coloured with Shabby Shutters distress ink and (background) sprayed with Golden Mint Cosmic Shimmer, stamped with Shabby Shutters distress ink and SeeDs children stamp, text stamped with Brilliance Cosmic Copper; sand-coloured foam heated and stamped with Hampton Art key stamp and Brilliance Cosmic Copper; Spellbinders copper metal embossed with Cuttlebug Heart Blocks and also die-cut and embossed with Butterfly combo then inked with holographic black and heat-embossed with clear powder; Prima flower, copper eyelets (which are straight unlike how they look in the photo !).
