Time for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons. and this time our challenge is Let's get sentimental. We want to see the sentiment as the main focus of your creation and we would love to see you use ribbon too. Just for a change I made something to keep. Hubby recently decorated the bedroom and I wanted to make a large plaque. The bedroom previously had 3 cream walls and the one behind the bed was plum. Now the walls are all the same colour, this gorgeous duck egg blue, so quite a change. He painted the pine furniture cream and varnished the tops, I am loving the shabby chic look and wanted to make the plaque fit in with that look. I also wanted to use some of my favourite things and a couple of new dies.
So I asked hubby to paint the wooden heart with the same cream paint as the furniture.
