November Birthday - Update


This is something a bit different for me and I think it turned out well. I have used 3 different stamps on this, must be a record....for me.... lol.
The music is a Penny Black stamp, another is part of a large Docrafts stamp from the bargain bin at Colemans,  and the blue corner stamp from one of those small stamp collections.

I created the November calendar page in PPx2 and printed it on to BP.....I have done one for December too.....tore round the edges, sponged with chalk ink pad and highlighted the date of the birthday. I thought this was a nice touch :-)

Edit: Oooops, I have just noticed that I left in the 31 copied from the Dec calendar - everyone knows there are 30 days in November, lol. I will change it ASAP

Take 2 - mistake rectified!! I had to do the whole lot again as I had merged all  the layers on the first attempt and couldn't undo. Anyway, I think this one is much neater

Greeting printed and then cut with Nestie label and sponged with chalk ink pad. I cut 3 circles with my 1/4" hole punch, coloured them with the same ink pad, and shaped them to look like brads, then coated them with clear gloss finish. I had to add a bit of raffia

A lovely creation Irene. The text on the greeting is lovely and the calender idea is brilliant. Someone's going to be delighted with this one.
