ROP Combined #38 + Die Cut Dreams #48

Arnie's back,lol .... here I am with my second project ladies, I had so much fun making this and was so eager to start it that I forgot to take a before piccy ...again :( I am entering this into 2 challenges, 1) Roses on Paper & Belles 'n' Whistles combined challenge #38 ~ A Gift... and 2) Die Cut Dreams #48 ~ Lace it up.


I bought this wooden calendar in an unfinished state, the same as the little hanging thing I made previously, first I covered it with Distress ink... Rusty Hinge then gave it a light covering with Antique Linen & Old Paper. I cut the papers to size and decorated the edges using both MS punches and stuck them in place, I made a hole for the ribbon to go through for hanging and added the bow, I then added Tilda & after colouring the small flower pot added that too, finally I added the lace using ds tape .... voila!
