An April Calendar Set

Some of you may remember way back at Christmas I made a Calendar and Card set for my sister-in-law...I've been showing the different months as we go (and you can see them all by clicking on the word Calendar in the bottom of the post).  We're now in April!  Can you believe it's almost here?  

I love this one because it's so warm and cheerful.  Here is the set together, using the beautiful A Year in Flowers I  stamp set from Flourishes.  



Now here are the closer photos:



And an even more detail shot on the card....


You can see I made the sentiment label punch smaller by sliding the original punched shape through the back of the punch again and cutting off a little more on one side to better match the size of the sentiment.    I kept all the details somewhat similar with the use of the Labels Sixteen Nestabilities, and the pretty little scallops and ribbon.  

This calendar template is still a free download at Flourishes.  Here's the LINK.  

Have a great Sunshiney day friends!

Fabulous daffodils and I love how you used that nestie shape to frame them. The two layered on top of each other looks great. Lovely calendar page :) Can't wait for mine to bloom in the front garden!
