Two Fer One Challenge(s)

This week, I'm doing two challenges that ended up working well using the same entry.
Over at Stamp Something they have a challenge to use a charm in your design. Mine is the brass heart in the upper left hand corner.
At Stampin' for the Weekend, the challenge is to follow a sketch to create your design. The sketch is here on the blog.

My design was too large to make into a card with the supplies I have, so I made a wall hanging. I don't have all the latest toys like personal die cutters, so sometimes my cuts are not quite perfect. I figure that proves its handmade. :) The stamped image is by Stampin' Up!, the gold embossed paper word charm is from Hot Off the Press, the flowers are by Fred, She Said Designs, everything else is just stash. I mounted the piece on comic book baking board, which is acid-free and VERY sturdy.

I love your wall hanging Carolyn, such pretty colors you've used with the papers, and the Fred She Said flowers are lovely, they are so easy to use and look perfect on a card, and your heart charm sets it all off perfectly too.
