I Love My Puppy Calendar~ ABC Challenges GDT

Happy New Year Everyone!
Wish you all a healthy and magical 2015!

Today, I have a new creation to share with you ~ a perpetual calendar. 
It's a Guest Design project I made for ABC Challenges.
Thanks Nikki for having me as the January GDT!
The 1st challenge for 2015 starts today and the theme is Anything Goes,
sponsored by All Dressed Up Digital Stamps.

This sweet digi image is called I Love My Puppy from ADU.
I have colored it with Distress Ink pads as usual.

This calendar idea was inspired by a perpetual calendar tutorial 
I have modified all measurements to create this double sided calendar,
in order to fit in the image and all the dice. The base measures
4"D x 4 5/8"W and carries six dice, each measures 1 ½” ³.

Side view and back view. 

Designer Paper ~ Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour Collection.
Dies~ Go Kreate, Spellbinder, La La Land Craft, Memory Box, SU,
Marianne Design LR0327, LR0143, LR0192, LR0157.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
12mm Donna cream ivory cotton lace, natural hemp cord, sticky tape,
K&G pale pink and lilac rolled roses, WOC Apple Blossom flower,
WOC 30mm dusky blue wild rose, 3mm ivory flatback s/a pearls.

Hope my creation inspires you to make a perpetual calendar!
