Black & White

Starting to think about small handmade gifts and calendars are quite handy for that so thought I'd make one today.  I used a cover for a book that I never got round to making up for the main piece and for the lower piece I used a freebie Red Cross coaster. (have several of these now and always knew they would come in handy!)  Covered both pieces with digi paper from Raspberry Road Designs printed at different sizes.  Coloured the fantastic Kenny K image with spectrums and added black glitter to her boots (its sparkle in the pics not bits of white fluff! lol)  Mounted her onto black cs with an edge of cogs which is a TH sizzix die, added a starburst die cut and a clock die cut then a few gems, the calendar piece is decorated with a cog die cut and label die cut which is from Crafty Sentiments Designs and onto that I stamped Celebrate Today which is a PTI stamp, finished off with black and white stripey ribbon, if I don't find a suitable recipient it will just have to stay hanging in my craft room, oh what a shame that would be! lol  Hope you like it.

I would like to enter this calendar into the following challenges:
Creative Fingers #56 ~ Anything Goes #3
Allsorts #285 ~ Anything but a card #2
