LOTV Calendar stamps card

Hi again! & here's the other card I made for LOTV using there Calendar stamps. This time I used one of the larger circular calenders. Mounted onto a Spellbinders Fancy Tags 3 die cut from kraft card then covered in Shabby blue Embossing Powder. Behind this is a Spellbinders Floral Oval cut from Core'dinations Whitewash card, underneath I added cheese cloth and Shabby White Frantage for a shabby chic effect.

The designer papers are from the Vintage Summer collection by Maja Design. Paper edges have been inked with Pumics Stone Distress Ink using a blending tool, distressed with the scissors, then stiched around on the sewing machine.
I added 3 banner shapes under the main topper and cut out a hand from some old packaging - maybe you recognise it from the 'That Special Touch of' logo?!! I also added some correogated card re-cycled from an old box, painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint - love using this on my crads, its so effective & gives you instant texture, dimention and more shabby stylings.
The white/cream flowers & berries are by Kort & Godt, the mauve pink larger rose is Kaisercraft and the rest are from Live & Love Crafts. Below I ripped 2 of the edges and positioned lace behind the rip for 'peek-a-boo' lace effect which I just LOVE at the mo! The swirl die is a Magnolia Doo Hickey & the butterfly (just off the page) is Tim Holtx Movers & Shapers die cut from grungeboard & coated in Snow Tex.
Thanks for Looking.
