The first page of my calendar

Good Morning all I hope you are all well.
I decided to make a desk calendar for work a few days ago and have now made the frame and printed out all of the pages for the months. This was a free download which I found Here along with instructions on what to do. I made my first page using a sketch on Truly Scrumptious the sketch is show below;



I had to alter the sketch slightly as I accidentally put the image on the wrong way around and then added the embelies before I realised ooopps 

Here is my take on the sketch - The image is from the greeting farms digi image selection, I coloured this with copics cut her out and mounted her on to a circle cut with my X Cutter tool.




I used paper by Dovecraft called Wild Blossom. I don't tend to use these papers much as they are quite in your face but I thought they whent well with this sketch and the image.
There was also a colour challenge linked to the sketch which was to use inspiration from the image below;




I am also entering this card in to cupcake crafts challenge where the theme is 'Going Girly'
and Stampin for the weekend where the them is 'something new' I am making a calendar for the new year so I hope it fits
