Preparing for the New Year

I have made something other than a card!  This is a calendar that I have made using a digi stamp by Dr Digi.  I have coloured it using Polychromos pencils.  I layered my image onto patterned papers (these are by First Edition).  I didn't want this one to be too girly, hence the use of green and blue. I added eyelets at the top and added a loop of chiffon ribbon for hangign it with.  I also added some matching ribbon and a bow across the middle.

I attached the mini calendar at the bottom so that it clightly overlapped the bottom of the main rectangle, and then finally I added some die cut flowers.  I inked the edges of the flowers and curled the petals to make them look more realistic, and added some pearl centres. 

I hope you like it!

I would like to enter my calendar in the following challenges:

Crafty Friends - Blossom (use flowers)
Crafting with Friends - anything goes
PDE Linky Party - anything but a card
C.R.A.F.T Challenges - not a card
Addicted to Stamps and More - anything goes
Critters and Creatures Linky Party - anything goes with a critter.

Oh well how cute is this, loving the freshness about it. The image is great I wonder what they are saying to each other.

Thanks for joining us over at CRAFT, hope to see you again.
