Jazmyne for The Sweet Stop sketch.

I've had this gorgeous paper since I went to a craft camp at Mt Tamborine last year. When I first saw it, I knew I just had to have it. I think the shop had the whole line at the time but I liked the glitter stripe and the glitter floral the best. Just recently I was shopping online and found these absolutely gorgeous velvet flowers. As soon as I saw them, I thought, they would go fabulously with these papers, so I purchased them too. lol
Well as you can see, they do match really well.

Yes, I realise you are probably sick of seeing these calendar easel cards but I've enjoyed making them and do have a few more calendars left to use up. This one uses The Sweet Stop sketch 95.
I dyed the seam binding myself with glimmer mist. I'm just not sure whether I'm using this seam binding the correct way. To my mind, the loops etc should be a bit messy but I just can't seem to get it that way. A very kind friend sent me the gorgeous glimmer brads from Stampin' Up, they are just the right purple for the papers. Yummy.

This was posted on Friday to Jean so I hope it has got to her safely.

Thanks once again for visiting my blog.
