Another Easel Calendar Card

Hi all, me again!

I'm back with yet another Easel card in the form of a Calendar for next year. Let's hope I can sell a few of these too. I might even try them on Ebay. . .

Anyway, this is for three challenges. So, the first is the sketch, from Midnight Madness. This was a frustrating sketch to follow, I ripped up several attempts before being finally happy with this design.

I have used a set from Tinker & Co named Shabby Milly for this card/calendar, with the brown backing being from another set named Vintage Milly.

The next challenge is at A Spoon Full Of Sugar, and is a colour one. They wanted us to use Brown, with either Pink or Blue, well I chose to use Pink, oh and sorry, there is some cream colour too. . .

And the third challenge? I am entering for a second time at Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge, as it is another Calendar Card. Hope that's allowed girls??
