A classic card and a fun award!


Hi all! I am posting a card that I made a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those perfect moments where I tried a couple of things and just LOVED the result. I used the script background stamp (it's very faint in the background), spring dreams, black satin ribbon, TAC black cardstock, white ultrasmooth cardstock and prismacolor pencils. I love the elegant simplicity of this card. It almost falls into Heather's latest sketch challenge but not quite. :) I'll count as a nod to her sketch and one of these days, I hope to have time to really jump into her sketches and create!!

I spent the week-end working with my photographer friends at a wrestling tournament. It made my day to come home and see that Heather had selected my blog for the Pico and You Made My Day award!!! How fun and just the perfect day brightener after a super busy week-end. Thank you, Heather!

There are 5 rules attached to this and they are:

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve
this award for their creativity, design, interesting
material, and also contributes to the blogging
community, no matter what language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and
also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put
the name and link to the blog that has given her or him
the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize
have to show the link of "Oz-somestamps" blog , so
everyone will know the origin of this award.

Marjorie
