Anyone For Anya? March Birthday Calendar

Sunday brings a day of rest (ha ha...not so much when you have kids right!) and the Anyone For Anya? Weekly Challenge. This week is  the March Birthday Calendar Challenge. I was going to do something Autumn inspired as March signals the start of Autumn here in Australia but the closest I got was using green in the design. Oh well, good enough!
Don't look too closely at the wings (you have haven't you!) I forgot and used Stickles on it which makes the ink on my digital images run...then I covered it with glitter to 'fix' it. I use that term loosely. I was so happy with this design until I completely ruined it with the Stickles but didn't have time to re-colour another image. We learn from our mistakes I guess!

Get cracking on your March Calender and don't forget to use an image from either The Greeting Farm or CC Designs. Check out the Design Team gals work over at the Challenge blog too! There is some inspirational work to be seen! My BFF Sam is a Guest Design Team member this week too! You go girl! (By the way, I have nothing whatsoever to do with choosing weekly winners or the Top 3!)

The prize this week is this cutie from Whiff of Joy.
