Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #3

The challenge this week at Whimsical Wednesdays is a Home Decor Spring project.  I made a little plaque to hang on the front of a little chest I have.
I used the LACEY LABELS cartridge to make the base.  I stacked six of these to make the base sturdy.  I used linen white and taupe paper from the DCWV Christmas and Winter stack. That is a little ironic for a spring project, but it worked.  The cross is cut from the EASTER 2010 cartridge.  I just really love this cross.  It is one of my favorites.  The "Alleluia" is cut from the INSPIRED  HEART cartridge and the flowers are from the MOTHER'S DAY BOUQUET. 


All the other paper I used to make the plaque is from the K&Company, Brenda Walton Feuilles Hojas stack.  I did a little distressing around the edges and then inking to the plaque.  I used Color Box gold and taupe stamp pads for the inking.  I used a pretty, sheer, taupe ribbon for the hanger.
I really love the way this little plaque turned out.  My intent was to do it as an Easter project.  However, I  now believe I may be using it throughout the year.   

Don't forget to check out all of the great projects by the Design Team.  You can find their links over on the Whimsical Wednesday site.  But most importantly, we want you to play along on this fun challenge.
