A calendar for {MOM}

The third Sunday of October (the 17th this year) is Mother´s day in my country. I made a calendar to give as a present on that day.
I´m using Thanks Mum from Michelle Perkett, I colored the image with colored pencils (and blended with gamsol the skin parts) and placed it on the calendar with foam tape. I added glitter glue on the child dress and glued some blue glass seed beads on the mother´s dress.
The calendar was computer generated, I used Stamp III from Sueli Colbert and I made a flower with some tulle, felt, paper flower and glass seed beads, and I finished it with a heart pin. I pierced around the calendar with a thin needle and draw a heart with pencils on the 17th to highlight the date.
here is a front view to show the last details: rhinestones on the calendar flower swirl and glitter glue to framing it.

I´m playing at the following challenges:
Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge #47: girly with bling
Little red wagon Challenge #48: make your own embellishments
The creative Cottage #24: bling it on
Catch the bug Challenge: anything goes
Stamp, scrap and doodle: open challenge
