Ladies and Gentleman (in case Ted reads this), I have an announcement to make. Look to your right. No, I mean to the right of this post. See the word at the top of the right hand column? (Scroll up.) "Awards." Can you believe it? Last week I won a Top Mouse Award from Waltzingmouse Stamps for WMSC #6! I know, I'm still shocked! Then, the same night, I also found out that I won a Shining Light Award from Our Daily Bread Design for their Challenge #22! I've never won a challenge award before, and I win two on the same day??? It was like Christmas around here, let me tell you! I'm still celebrating. Thank you to two great companies for the honors!
Today's card is one I made for WMSC #7. I turned the sketch on its side, and used one of my new stamp sets from WMS, Victorian Frippery. What a great set! I can see so many possibilities for it. I chose a pink and black color palette for the card because it seemed Victorian and Parisian to me. The patterned paper I have had in my stash for ages, and I'm trying hard not to hoard supplies anymore. ;-> I colored the pearls with a Copic marker to match the pink shade and used some really cool looking ribbon from Michaels that I am not hoarding anymore either, LOL!
