Decorated Advent Calendar and a BnW Sale!

Hello everyone! As promised I'm back with my second posting for today! For info on the Belles 'n Whistles 'Progressive December Sale' please scroll further down!

Because today is the 1st of December and the first day to open a door on the Advent Calendars I'd like to show you the decorated Advent Calendar I made. It was published in Whimsy's Inspirational Magazine , Issue 4 and has a new home now in Germany! Thank you Dagmar! :-)

I used the cute 'I'd follow you anywhere' stamp from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong collection. This stamp was already released last year and is available HERE. I colroed the image using my Copics and then cut it out. The trees in the back are cut with a die from Marianne design and the snowflake border is a die from Memory Box called Frostyville. DP is from Basic Grey's collection Eskimo Kisses (2010). I distrssed the paper with white acrylic paint. On top of the Advent Calendar I used Aleene's True Snow and German Glass Glitter to create a snow effect.

Here are some more photos to see the details and different angles:

The sides I decorated using a Memory Box Holly Vine die, Whimsy's Shapeology Snowflake die and a Poinsettia die from Marianne Design.
