Sharing: "Gal Pals" Hanging

Today I'm sharing a new piece of artwork.  It started with a blank coaster.  I thought the image of the fun loving ladies would be perfect on it.  I inked the coaster blue and fussy cut out the image.  Behind that is a round piece of green textured paper that has Rock Candy Distress Stickles added for sparkle.  I also used various Distress Stickles on the image flowers.   All around the coaster are beaded wires.  I placed three coordinating beads on silver wire, used Glossy Accents to hold them on and inserted between the coaster and paper layer. 
I created a large rosette to use as the base. 
The saying was printed on white cardstock and inked with DI. 
I punched holes at the top, added jump rings and ribbon to hang. 
The beads on the bottom were added the same way.

This piece is entered into the following Challenges:
(L is For "Ladies"!)
