Using Mona's CR84FN Color challenge for this wall hanging.

I made it for one of the ladies in my Womens Ministry Group. I try to do something for each of their birthdays. She loves yellow so this was the perfect challenge. I gave it to her this morning and she was delighted with it.

Using a piece of fiber board I drilled holes to hang it and then painted it white working
in some yellows and greys for the background. Although it doesn't show well because some of it was rather light I stamped, painted, stenciled
and doodled all around. Added some grey splatters and the background was finished.
I had a perfect dp that is yellow with grey strips. Slathered some grey textured
medium onto the card board cut out and stitched on the dp.

I made some grey paper to stamp the scripture onto and cut out with the Spellbinder.

The flowers were die cut out of the kraft paper and a little yellow chalk on the edges. The little grey flowers were punched and layers then I cut some leaves to go with all the flowers. You can see a closer up of one of the flowers below. Those flowers definitely needed a butterfly to flit among them.

I didn't have anything grey to go around the hanger holes so dug in my husbands drawers and used a couple washers to go with the grey theme pulled the ribbon through and tied a bow to hang it by.
Thanks for stopping by today.
