Birdhouse Calendar

Here is a calendar for my office desk, I was inspired by the Challenge #2 over at Inkspirational Challenges
I feel my red has not photographed very true to life but it is as in the inspiration!

I used:
Red cardstock folded into a tent format
A sweet digi from Digistamps for Joy called Welcome home coloured with Spectrum Noir pens
My Woodware border system to make the lattice at the bottom
A calendar from DO
A Safmat greeting

I would like to try my luck at:
