Stampin'Up - Flower Shop

The year is now winding down quickly, Time for those gifts for work colleagues and the kids' teachers
This desk calender is one which you can personalise

I have made the base and backing  from scored and folded A4 natural ivory card. Cloud embossed pool party forms the background.
The calender backing and photo mat are Pear pizazz, as is the paper. The flowers are stamped on white card, 3 each in calypso coral, wisteria and saffron, punched out and sponged.
The sentiment is black embossed. The tall leaves are from Secret Garden, stamped in versamark and embossed in wasabi.
The little bird is punched from island indigo card, painted with shimmer, and coated in crystal effects.The leaf sprigs are also coated in crystal effects. The saffron flower on the bottom left also has crystal effects.
The flowers are touched up with shimmer paint, and have sparklets or rhinestone centres.
A small double saffron butterfly, finished with a linen thread tied natural button flies from the top corner.
I hope you have gained some inspiration from this, and have enjoyed your visit.
Till next time
