March Calendar Girls challenge

Hi Friends!

Our hostess this month is April, and her challenge was very creative and I loved it!

 This is how she explained to us....

Our March Theme
And now the moment you have been waiting for.....

Drum roll, please.....

This month's challenge:
{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!

"Our Miss March"

Using my birth date I choose color challenge 62, and sketch challenge 12. Since my month and date are the same, my combination was easy to choose.

Required colors were Bashful Blue, Chocolate chip, Close to cocoa.
I matched as best as possible, and added a some yellow.

Stickles in the center of the flower.

Thanks for visiting today!
