Just for Fun

Well here goes with my first challenge piece.  It's for the Just For Fun challenge which this week is to use corrugated card.
Spent half an hour yesterday hunting for packaging - DH thinks I mad -and then peeling it apart before getting out the red and gold dabbers and trying to create an asian style fabric-effect background.
Had no idea where I was going with it but it ended up a hanging/tag/thingy which I quite like.  Added some closionne (?) beads and a bit of black lace - weren't they a 70's pop group?
Anyway - here it is.

My other half thinks I've lost the plot lol this is a wonderful hanging thingy, the rustic shape and colours you've used have worked so well with the image :) Thank you for choosing to make your first Challenge piece for Just for Fun and we hope we will see you again :)

Great thingy!! It's funny how sometimes you wander and wonder over a piece and it ends up as a lovely piece.
