Good morning :) A little change from Christmas cards and decorations. I've used the Tonic Studios "Decorative Rivoli" Layering die set for the background and inside if the card with a butterfly form the Monarch & Princess Wings Die set. The smaller butterfly is from an older Tonic die set.
I've used a Christmas Calendar Kit (see below) to make this advent calendar with papers from the 6x6 "A Christmas Story" paper pad FEPAD130x16 and numbers from the Dovecraft Christmas Basics Adhesive Advent Numbers set DCTOP026x16 (Silver) and I used sticker sets 28985, 28958 and 28914 inside.
This would be great for some of my friends to make with their children/grandchildren :)
