Cheap & Cheerful Mixed Media Plaque

Well the lovely lady Lou from Fernli Designs has set a challenge in the UK&Ireland Craft Swap make a cheap and cheerful Mixed Media Plaque....using a piece of corrugated cardboard measuring 8"x 8". It has to contain a verse/quote or photo. So, this is my mixed media plaque, made so I can hang it rather than have it on a stand....not sure how long I will get to keep it as my daughter has seen it already,lol.

I really had so much fun making this, played around a bit with the colour palette,unfortunately the photo dosen't do this piece justice as you can't see the beautiful shimmer.
Lots of odds and ends from my stash, the wooden pieces,which were gessoed several times before spraying are from Fernli Designs.
I just could not resist adding this gorgeous vintage photo of the little girl, she is just adorable.
I am entering this in to the challenge over at Altered Eclectics
