Flowery calendar

Hi all
I have made this calendar using Sweet owl first edition papers....i had a few single sheets of this beautiful paper pack left and as i love it so much i wanted to make something pretty from it..I used my new tonic studio anenome,begonia and cornflower floral dielights dies...Tim Holtz tattered floral dies ribbon and gems from meiflower crafts and nesties for the base.
This project took all morning  to make but i enjoyed it and it looks so lovely in real life
The final pic is showing the reverse and i used the thickest card i had around 350gsm  ...which just happened to be a silvery colour but hey its the back and will not be seen by
