Calendar Girls March Challenge

The card on my blog is for the Calendar Girls March challenge and Tami was our hostess.  Our challenge was....

Oh girls, we are going to create a card this month! I thought of a few things that might keep us busy for March.

Did you know that March used to be the first month of the year on the Roman calendar? It was changed to the third month by Julius Caesar. The calendar we use today is refined from the Julius to the Gregorian. Sadly, we only gained like the wee bit of a percentage of more time to craft with the change! In theme of the original first month, let's use one button on your card.

Let's make a card based on a sketch. I saw this sketch and wanted to use it at some point. It's time! Please note, the sketch challenge is still open, so be sure to join!  

Speaking of Romans, purple is the color of the day. Please use the color purple on your card somewhere. Purple was worn by Roman Emperors and magistrates. It is also the color worn by those cute little ladies you see out lunching together, wearing purple and red and a bunch of hats!

Since history was after lunch for me in high school, I really had to put my 'dig deep to remember' thinking cap on for this one! Here are the CliffsNotes: one button, use the sketch and purple somewhere on your card.

Thanks Tami for a fun challenge!  Here is my card:


Thanks for stopping by.  See the links in my sidebar to all the other Calendar Girls blogs and check out their wonderful creations.

Aaawww, what a sweet card! I really like how you paired the purple with that great DP with the green in it. Looks really good together.

The button and layer under are really fun. You totally rocked the challenge - thanks!
