My Design Team Debut for Crafty Purple Frog

I am a little bit excited - well I'll be totally honest - I am VERY excited as it is time for my Crafty Purple Frog Challenge Design Team debut.  The topic for the challenge this fortnight is "anything but a card".
I decided to make a calendar door hanger for my card stall at Knuston Hall on August Bank Holiday Monday.  The image I chose was called green dragonfly and I chose to use the decoupage image but there is also a pyromage sheet as well.
I inked my wooden door hanger with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Pine Needles distress inks.  I then used various Aspects of Design scroll stamps and stamped with the Pine Needles and Shabby Shutters distress ink pads.  I cut out the image and decoupaged it up adding glitter glue to the dragonflies.  I used some scraps of paper and die-cut some flowers using my Marinane Designs dies and finished them off with buttons tied on with wire along with some leaves and some butterflies.  I used some Papermania tiny flower punches to punch out some small flowers with even smaller flowers for their centres.  I threaded some beads onto some wire and hung these at the bottom of the door hanger opening.  The hanger is finished off with some fibres, ribbon and gems.

It would be lovely if you could have a look at my fellow Design Team creations here.
