Calendar Challenge - March

Time to upload the calendar pages for March of next year.  The above one is my CD Case calendar.  Doing this one in a Scripture theme - chose a verse about growing since SRING started this month.  Would you believe that the background paper is actually wrapping paper?  A lady from church regularly contributes to the Disabled Veterans and therefore receives wrapping paper and stuff from them. She likes to pass it on to me since  in her words "you make pretty stuff."
Other supplies used:
  • White ribbon
  • Felt tip pen
    • faux stitching and verse
  • Ornate Labels # 3 - Sizzix
  • Homemade Dew drops
  • Pink nail polish
    • colored dew drops with
  • old pattern
    • butterfly
Here's a closer view of that butterfly --- it has several layers and was cut out and embossed with a Provo Craft die/embossing folder set I have.
Here's the quilted calendar for March
 I used spring papers - mainly pinks/purples for my quilt this month.  Added a big 3D ribbon flower to the center to make the page "pop."
The flowers in the center are Iced Got Flowers with a rhinestone in the middle.
Here's a little closer view:
I plan to give these completed calendars as gifts this coming Christmas.

Those are so pretty! I love the layered butterfly and wrapping paper background on the first one. You know I love the quilted look on the second one, too! :)

That is more like a work of art than a calendar.
