All Dressed Up - Challenge # 67

Hello, my friends!

Today is the beginning of a new challenge at All Dressed Up!
The challenges are always Anything Goes but you MUST use an image from All Dressed Up.
There are freebies available at the challenge blog HERE! :o)

For this challenge, I created my March Calendar Page.
Yes, March is my birthday month, so this image was perfect!
It's called "Smile It's Your Birthday" and you can find it HERE.

Won't it be a wonderful reminder for my husband to see every day? ;o)
Actually, he doesn't need a reminder. 
He has already asked me to make a birthday card 
...that he can buy from give to me.
Yes, he does that! lol

Okay, on to my page.
I knew this paper would be just perfect for the image. 
I border punched the pretty matching yellow paper, 
and added one strip to the top and one strip to the bottom. 
 I inked the calendar in yellow, and adhered it.  
I fussy cut the image and the sentiment and popped them up on foam tape.
Finally, I added some pretty pearls. 

Here you can see how nicely they stand out off the page they should! :o)
