Another week, and another challenge entry.

This is for Stampin Queens

They post a sketch and us crafters then create with that in mind.

My entry strays from the sketch slightly, as the kraft card ended up a bit too small - so my 12 little buttons had to be laid out in 4's.

It took ages to make, as I haven't got a circle punch - so had to run a die through my Cuttlebug 12 times!!  The months are stamped with a Versamark pad, then embossed in black.  They were aged with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad - Old Paper.  A piece of kraft card was used - hand torn, and then inked with Tim Holtz Black Soot (now all over my hands too!).  The sentiment was created on my computer and printed onto Kanban cream textured paper, and then torn as well.  Both are stuck on a Kanban red card blank.
