but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

June Calendar Girls Challenge

Our theme this month for the Calendar Girls challenge was Dollar Days.  I was actually the hostess this month and I gathered up all my unused/unopened dollar stamps I had purchased over time and sent each Calendar Girl a stamp to use for this month's card.  

The requirements for this month's challenge were:

1. At least two layers. 

2. You must use the $1 stamp you receive on the card. However since the $1 stamps are small you can use background stamps or other stamps to create a background, and sentiment stamps of your own on your card as well. But I would like the $1 stamp to be the focal point.

3. If you have any buttons, ribbons, or other embellishments that you bought for $1 or less, embellishments that were gifted to you, or recycled items, please use those products to embellish the card.

And here is my card:

The $1 stamp packet I used for my card included the candles and the round sentiment.  I didn't fill in the sentiment yet, because I am not sure who is going to get this birthday card.  The designer paper was bought on sale at Michael's (less than a dollar) and the button was bought from SU! clearance items.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Please see my sidebar for all the Calendar Girls blogs and be sure to check out their Dollar Days creations!

This looks like a very cool challenge! I have loads of those little sets lying around, but never have any ideas on how to make them the focal point as they are so small! Also the added embellies challenge was a great touch. Love your card!
