Anything goes at Fab 'n' Funky

Hello and good morning, there's a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky starting today, it's my turn to pick the theme this week so I pick 'Anything Goes'...can't get any easier than that! Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous Di's Digi Stamps offering a lovely prize for the lucky winner.
I made a hanger rather than a card for my Mum's birthday last month. She's bedridden and we hang her cards from cords around the walls....she gets loads of them as we're a very large family. Her eyesight isn't great so big is best! This is quite big, about 20 inches long. I made some templates for the letters and cut them from purple (already lightly embossed) cardstock, distressed and inked  the edges adding faux stitching. The letters are joined together by threading ribbon through eyelets.

The little bear is of course a Di's digi stamp available here, I printed him quite large, coloured him with copics , fussy cut and stuck him  on my hanger. The daisies are Polkadoodles stamps, coloured with copics and die cut. The butterflies are die cut from vellum and overlaid with the yellow card, tiny green gems added to their bodies. The sentiment is a LOTV stamp and the little gold hearts are Nuvo Crystal Drops. Mum was pleased with this and it's still hanging in her room now.
Thanks for calling by, be sure to hop over to Fab 'n' Funky to see my teamies'  beautiful creations, I will be so happy if you choose to play along this week!

What a brilliant idea, both for the hanger and for the cords around the room so she can see them better.
A really lovely creation.
