Being the 28th, it is time for the calendar Girls to show off their cards! The links to all the blogs are in my sidebar....stop over and leave them love too!

March is Tami's month this year and here is what she said:

Miss March: Tami

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!

I cannot wait to see what my friends come up with. It is always something to look forward to!

No designer paper is an easy one for me....I never know how to mix and match them anyway, lol!
And, I have been using my stash quite well this year {am quite proud of myself, actually}.

So, what to make? I decided on a card to send to my BFF. Now, she is well aware that I am a terrible sender, so she will look for this in a month or But, I have a PIF gift to make for her, so she will get the card with that! Did I say eventually??

Without further ado, here is my card:

I took left over cream card stock and ran it through two different inked embossing folders, added some black ribbon and an inset sentiment with some half pearls. I have been scared to ink my EF's, but they cleaned up easier than I expected!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is very pretty April! I love the inked EF background! I am too afraid to try that, but maybe I'll have to now that I have seen yours!

Great card April, and great take on this months challenge!

Omgosh! It's a beauty. Thosed inked embossing folders are amazing. What a great idea. Going to have to give that a try. Love the colors and pearls setting off the sentiment.

April, that card is beautiful. I've never tried the inky folders, glad to know they do wash up nicely. Curious to know what that bottom folder is.
