SDC 73 "hanging or home decor"

  As I write this post and set it to post tomorrow morn I wonder if we will know who our new president will be...This election will tell which way our country is headed MORE  then ever...two drastically different paths could be taken....I hope everyone gets out and VOTES.  I am thankful that I live in a country where I am free to do just that.....  nuff  said  :) 
Stampotique dt member Sam Read has challenged us to make some sort of hanging or home decor item this week.  This is cool since my dd has just moved into her first home. :) I picked up a canvas and collage pauged, sewed and decorated some dp on it.  I stamped "picture door"  and colored it with some copics and cut it out. I placed it on some book print type cs and sewed around it.  The dp included scraps from my lcs and some bg papers.  I made the flowers by just randomly cutting circles and sewing around them and distressing the edges with ink.  The stems and leaves were also just cut out free hand ( I like the look) and I used some letter stickers to write "Jamie's crib" on top of the door and  home on the bottom left.  The Vintage buttons are from a local antq store.


Trying to keep with not spending a fortune I found a black shadow box ( 60% off) in Michaels and the framer person took it apart , put in some of those plastic lift bars and popped in my canvas.  He then even finished the back off for me.  :)
Yay!  Finished product after glass...................

Thanks for looking !
