Calendar Girls March Challenge

Today is the day to post our cards for the Calendar Girls March Challenge.  Out hostess, Tami, came up with this challenge:

Um, I hope I do not hurt anyone's feelings here but we are all a little bit of paper hoarders!!! 

Well, we are going to have to give up the security blanket for March. I would like to see your best created card with NO designer paper. *gasp*.....*thud* {I think J just hit the floor}.

So go ahead and grab your 'old school stamps' - yep, like a set you have not used in years - and create a card for the Calendar Girls.

Oh, and let's try to keep in theme with 'use what'cha got', please no new purchases for this round. Use what'cha got...well, everything but designer paper that is!

Say it isn't so????  No designer paper!!!  ***GASP***.  Believe it or not...it is doable.  

I used a layout and ink colors that we used for a card we created at a recent stamp club.  (I love the white on white!)  I did change the card stock color, sentiment and images from the original card we created. The ink colors are Summer Starfruit, Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, and Garden Green. And, as instructed, I used what I had. I did not buy anything new to make this card.  Stamp sets are from A Muse and Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please check out all the Calendar Girls creations.  See my sidebar for their blogs.

Deb, your card is GORGEOUS!!! I love those three panels and how you gave them color (flowers). I did gasp a bit with Tami's theme (love me some DP!) but after seeing your card I'm thinking "Who needs DP anyway???"

I'm so glad you're a Calendar Girl!

Not only is no DP doable, you did it fabulously!!! I really like how your card turned out. The colors are great and that font for the sentiment is perfect.

Thanks, for sharing your great ideas.
