Julia Spiri Challenge - 13 Anything But a Card

Morning Crafty Friends and Bloggers, a new challenge has started over at Julia Spiri Challenge. Our theme as usual is ''Anything Goes'' with a twist of ''Anything But a Card''!! All Julia Spiri images, challenge details etc, can be found by following the links at the bottom of the page!! ... For this I have created a jewellery hanger and used this elegant image Fashion in Paris which I knew would be ideal! So here is my finished creation!
My Project
Products Used
Julia Spiri - 'Fashion in Paris' image 
Promarkers - Poppy, Ruby, Crimson, Lipstick red, Tan and Caramel
Copic Ciao - Skin white and Pinkish white
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
Creata - Black mirror card
Die-namics - Fancy flourish die
Britannia - Rose leaf die
Petaloo - Velvet butterflies
Pan Pastel - Red
Cinch - Binding wire
Trimcraft - 'Sweet Paris' red pearls
Chipboard, Off white bobble dot card, Black floral backing paper, Red glitter card, Flowers, Red ribbon, Gems, Gem chain and from my stash

First of all I cut an A4 piece of chipboard down to 6x6, along with the red glitter card which I layered onto the chipboard. On top of this I layered both black paper, bobble dot card and ribbon. I then used the Cinch to punch holes along the bottom of the hanger and my Crop-a-dile for the two hanging holes at the top. For hanging the jewellery I used a binding that I opened and fed through the holes at the bottom. To hold this in place and keep secure, I stitched with black cord. The image I printed onto watercolour card, coloured and carefully cut out.  I added the die cut flourishes and rose leaves, flowers, buterflies, gems, and pearls. Then the sentiment that I printed, cut out and edged with red Pan Pastel, then finishing off with the gem effect chain.
