Patches of Pink Thursday Link-up & Challenge

Hello Everyone! I am so super excited for today's post. Welcome to the my first ever project/post as a design team member & first challenge featuring the Patches of Pink Design Team. How Exciting!!!! The challenge this week is to create a project using pastel colors and a Spring theme. I wanted to make something other than a card for this project so I decided to go with a wall/door hanger that screams SPRING.

Please join us in this weeks challenge and link-up your project here. You may enter the challenge starting today (Thursday) and going thru Sunday May 8th. Don't forget to come back on Monday to put your vote in for your favorite project. Voting starts Monday May 9th and ends Tuesday the 10th at Noon (EST).  Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

I wanted this to have a good sturdy base so I cut all the base pieces from cereal boxes that I have been saving. It provided the perfect thickness all layered up.

All cuts minus the letters are from the Create-A-Critter Cartridge (My fav)
Base shape cut at 7/12" Pg 33 Raccoon Phrase
Light Blue Cardstock shape cut at 7 1/2" (layer right over cardboard)
Yellow Cardstock shape cut at 7"
Patterned Flower paper by Paper Studio cut at 6 1/2"
"Welcome Spring" letters cut from Cricut Classic Font at 1 1/2"
Sun cut at 2"
Butterflies cut at 1 1/2" without layers
Bird1 cut at 2 1/2"
Worm cut at 1 1/2"
White gel pen used for stitching

Base shape and pink cardstock cut at 5"
Bird dimensional stickers by Recollections
Flower Gems from Target $1 Bin

The two pieces are connected by some light pink ribbon with white dots. I have glued them onto the back of the project but I am sure there are other ways you could attach them to.

Please stop on over at the Patches of Pink blog and check out all the other fabulous projects by the other PoP Design Team Members and don't forget to play along with us in this challenge and link-up!
