Calendar Girls- Celebrate YOUR Birthday!

Yeahhh! It's that time of the month for the Calendar Girls to reveal their challenge...
Who are the Calendar Girls? ♥ You can check them out here:
Read what our Miss April had in mind for the month of March....
here are her own word for this month'schallenge :
"...{In another thread, we were talking about what kind of challenges we like best and that is where I got this idea}
I want you to make a birthday card based on your date of birth. I would love you to use two parts of your birthdate and use the corresponding color and sketch challenges available on the forums.
So, my birthday is 3-8-67.....either 3, 8, or 67 would be the
color challenge and either of the two remaining would be the sketch challenge.
My choices could be: 3/8, 3/67, 8/67; or the reverse of these
combos for color/sketch or sketch/color.....Clear as mud, right?? Use two parts of your birthdate and the corresponding challenge to make a birthday card!
April... "

Well my birthday is 30/11/1951. With that in mind, I scooted to the sites and selected challenge CC30 (my birth-date) and SC51 (the year I was born) Yes...I do not mind revealing my age at all......what would be the point?? ehehe  So this is the sketch I cased and the colors for CC30 are Bravo Burgundy and Cream Caramel. Luckily I had some card stock sheets left!            Thank YOU for such a FUN challenge miss April! or should I say miss March - aka April?? ;o)   Are you confused yet? ehhehee lol

Sweet P, I'm so sorry. I tried to delete my earlier comment. I don't know why I thought I was on Barb's blog, but I did. I didn't mean to pester you that way - you know I always save that for Barb. I guess I'll have to be much more careful in the future!

Your crd is lovely. I do admire you... you are so creative and your cards always inspire me to try to think outside my norm because each of yours is a unique treasure!

I'm glad you're a Calendar Girl.

Now if you can tell me how to delete my earlier comment, I will. ;)

What fabby colors together! Who knew?! Your DP matches perfectly, by the way.

I love the sweetness of this card. You chose the perfect image for the DP. The buttons on the flowers are just the right touch.

Super job on this challenge. Thanks, for sharing.
