Cards and More Shop DT - February Calendar Page

Hello, my friends!

I'm back again to share my latest project for Cards and More Shop.
I have used products from the store to create my February calendar page.

Again, I am working on a 5" X 7" white chipboard base.
I added some papers from the beautiful Maja Design Summer Crush Collection.
The image is the Paper Nest Dolls - Love Strung Ellie.
I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir markers.
I created a flower using the Rose Creations Spellbinders die.
Then I punched out some hearts and adhered them to the page.
It's the perfect page for a February calendar! :o)


Here you can see the glossy accents I've added to the hearts, 
and the stickles I've added to the image bow and hearts.


These are the products I used from the Cards and More Shop:
