Calendar Girl

I've made this Valentine themed easel card in non-traditional orange and green. I found some old beads that I'd had for ages that spelt out "I love you", wrote up a calendar for the month of February on the computer and stuck it on, and then drew a heart around the 14th for Valentines. 

The flowers are from a ribbon which I cut into individuals and topped off with punched hearts. I also drew fake stitching in white gel pen around the hearts and also around the orange oval.  The brads on the base part only just keep the top from sliding down, but they were part of the recipe that I was working to, and along with all the gems and buttons, I thought there was enough without adding anything else!

I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting

Netty,
You have made a lovely card!!
Tilda is the main focus which is most important.
Your choice of paper and minimum embellishments are just perfect. Love the way you have used the beads and wire to spell 'I love you'. Also the calendar is a great touch on the easel card :o)
Tilda is coloured wonderfully!
Thank you for joining in our Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
Hugs, Candy
