Diva territory

At C.R.A.F.T. this week, Challenge 93 is all about door hangers - just make one and upload - no other criteria!  I made one for my daughter's room:

What I did:
1> I made my own template and cut it from recycled cardboard (packaging from a cereal box).
2> I covered it patterned paper (Kaisercraft 'Wish Upon')
3> I added ribbon to make a hanger (Stampin' Up!)
4> I inked up the edges (Colorbox fluid chalk).
5> I printed Glitterbabe's Party Dress image on patterned papers (Prima 'Annalee' and Dream Street 'Baylee's Garden').
6> I matted the foam letters (AC Thickers), a technique I swiped from the Orange guru.
7> I added alphabet stickers (Echo Park).

I was thrilled to use lots more older product and whittle my stash down a little bit more!

This project is also for:
# Stamp Something ~ March Digi Day
# Really Reasonable Ribbons ~ Challenge #19 ~ Green theme
# Simon Says ~ Anything goes
