March - Calendar Girl

 *** ♥ Double posts today! If  you are looking for the Dueling Card please scroll down...♥ ***

Finally finally finally....
my MARCH card for the Calendar Girls challenge IS done!
I did two cards today (one for the Dueling Darlings and this one for the CG)
Truth is that my mind was confused and I thought I owed TWO -DDD cards'
noooooo...I owed TWO CG cards' least I made this one so now I am still ONE behind for April....*sigh*

March Challenge from Tami
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!

 For my card I used the following:
Ink : Versafine Onix Black , Orchid Opulence (yup, dusted IT off too! lol)
                                                          purple/lavander markers (SU)
Stamps :  Artifacts (SU)   and Warm Words -sentiment- (SU)
Designer Paper : Me and MY BiG Ideas plus C/S
Accessories : Clockworks Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug) , lavander button ,
punch from Martha Stewart , paper flowers from my stash.
Tecnique : sponging, dry embossing and embossed inking

Below : inside of my card

 Again, sorry for the life has been a delay after another lately in regards
to my fun-time with crafting , and I don't forsee any changes too soon either....*sigh*

                                   ♥ C'est la vie!! Thanks for visiting!!! ♥
