A Work In Progress page 1

HI there, well today I decided I wanted to make something a little different, I had bought a pack of calendar tabs in preparation for making some easel calendars but circumstances did not allow me the time and then I remembered spotting a wonderful calendar while I was going round blogland but unfortunately I cannot remember where I saw it, so my apologies for not giving the person credit for this calendar but my thanks to them for the inspiration.  Now this is going to be a work in progress as I shall complete each month as my mojo allows and I'll share each page as it is completed, the final calendar will be in the shape of a star.  So here is the first page and it celebrates the Chinese New Year which this year actually starts on 31 January.  Now the year I was born the Chinese New Year actually started on the 30 January which is my actual birthday!  I digress!  I have used the gorgeous stamp 'Oriental' from the Lollipop Dreams collection which is available at Crafty Sentiments Designs, I have coloured her with spectrums and paper pieced her dress and then added yellow glitter pen .  The papers are some very old HOTP and I have finished off with some old gold peeloffs and some red brads.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly ~ Anything Goes
LEJ Designs #85 ~ Anything Goes
Just Us Girls #223 ~ Technique ~ Paper Piecing

A Gem of a Challenge #110 ~ Something New (New Year)
