I love crafting with old books, catalogs and dictionaries. For these cards, I used pages from my Diane Madaras 2009 calendar. She is one of my favorite artists and I purchase her calendar each year. I made these cards for the Saturday Stamp Club swap. The theme was "botanicals." I carefully planned and cut each calendar page so flowers would be included in each background piece. Then I created a scrunchy flower out of my old black and white seed catalog. I like that this makes each card is unique.
