Today I've created a 2016 Calendar for Splitcoaststampers WT challenge "May Flowers".
I picked up this Victorian Girl with Calendar at the Doll show this past weekend, and thought how perfect it would be to use on a card type hanger for the wood stands hubby and I gave away about 5 Christmas's ago.
I cut her down a bit, and took the calendar off. Next I designed my card base for the hanger. All the bases measure 6 3/4 x 6 so they can hang on the stand.
I used the DCWV French Country Stack for the design paper, and did couple of layers, and added my sewing.
For the Ribbon bow, I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Blue Lace Seam binding, but dyed it last night using Mister Huey's "Heirloom Blue" die. I needed the seam binding to be a little different in color for this, although I think I liked it better the color it was before, now looking at the photo....LOL oh well, in person it looks fine....hehehe
The flowers I used are also from RRR and are the Sweetheart Blossoms. LOVE these!!!! Lastly I added some doily's, and some Moss green leaves.
