Caardvarks & My Stamp Box Challenge + an award

Caardvarks' current challenge is sponsored by MyStampBox. The challenge is to use MSB logo colors,: black, white, and hot pink. I have had this acetate frame for a while, but could never make it work. I planned my card around this item :) I looked through Julee's Mojo Monday sketches (this one is #74). Then I went in search of papers. You know I chose BasicGrey! This is from the Urban Prairie collection that Michael's had on clearance last Spring. The "love" n slide is Making Memories and the ribbon is American Crafts. I used white linen and black linen card stock. Inside the frame is various rub-ons. I know you are thinking, "What, no stamping?" Some days are like that...
This lovely award is from my Cuttlebug Challenge blog DT sister, Roe. She is a sweetie! Please check out her wonderful blog, Creative Liberties. Now I am supposed to list five things I like:
1. My wonderful husband
2. My beautiful girls
3. Skeeziks, our furry daughter (some people might say "cat")
4. Chocolate
5. Decorative papers

Now to pass this on to five more bloggers...
