Twinkling Rock Sensation!

My card for today is for the sketch at Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays blog! It is MTTSC19. I missed this for last few weeks...don't know if there was a break, but I am so glad that it is back! This great sketch was done by Jack, and he had a fabulous sketch this week! I did alter it just a bit because with the hardware I used, I felt that it would be too heavy on the other side. I just really wanted the image and this beautiful paper to do the talking! The darker accent color almost looks like black, but it is actually Elegant Eggplant by Stampin' Up. The designer paper is from a fabulous bargain pack by Making Memories that I found at Tuesday Morning. And, of course, the fabulous fairy is Lily by Paper Makeup stamps. If you haven't checked out these stamps, you really need to...they are a "colorist's" dream!!

Paper: Scrapbook Basics Pastel by Making Memories; Barely Banana and Elegant Eggplant by Stampin' Up

Cassie gave me this fabulous award on her blog, and it is the karma award! I thought if anyone deserved good karma, she does because she is so faithful in her comments and wonderful words of encouragement. I normally forget the awards, but I happened to receive this one just as I was about to post, so here it is!!

The Karma Award: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
