Easel cake

 I finally finished cross stitching some cupcakes last week, and I made one of them into a birthday card.

I made this into a desk calendar that was suitable for a male, even though I used dark pink papers. I used the pink to bring out the colour of the cherry, but decided on gingham to stop it looking too feminine. I added the glitter ribbon stripes on both sections to follow the sketch shown below. The calendar tab is the stand for the easel design.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
