Wonderful Wednesday

Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by.  I'm excited that today starts another new challenge at Word Art Wednesday and you have the chance to win a great prize from Roben Marie Workshops.  I hope that you will stop by, grab this week's free scripture/Word Art, and enter a card or project in this week's challenge.

For this week's project, I made a little wall hanging.  I took chipboard, painted and distressed it, stamped and inked it, and then decorated it with scripture,  a flower cut from an old dress pattern using a Tim Holtz floral die, a crocheted flower, a Recollections brad and flowers, a Maya Road stick pin, some jute and baker's twine, and. . . oh my, too much going on here to mention it all.  This photo doesn't really even show it all up close and in detail.

I'm entering this little project in the following challenges:
