Use pictures from an old calendar

I had one of those little desk calendars that had cute pictures on it with a little quote each month.  I decided to cut up the calendar and make it into cards.  I cut out the picture and made a frame for it and used my scalloped scrap booking scissors to cut around it.  The strip of flowers was the bottom border of the calendar.  Then I cut some paper flowers out of some crinkle paper and used some brads that I had on hand.  To make the bottom of the card I used my scalloped scissors and then my two different sized hole punches to create a pattern.  I chalked the bottom of it with my red ink pad so it would show up against the back of the card when folded and I also chalked the edges of the card to create a border all the way around.
