Thank you for the card...

Sunday, August 8, 2010

Hi dear friends, I hardly had time this week to get a card done. So finally this morning I decided that I had to give it a try :) And here's what came out....

At Anya Ink this week’s challenge is to make a card with black & white and another colour. I chose as additional colour my favorite PINK :) Actually there is more pink than white or black, but I just am not used to black or white on my card. At Simon Says Stamps they challenged us with Sing it Baby.... They want us to think of a song, any song...old, new, loved, children's, movie theme, TV theme, etc. and they want us to create a card, scrapbook page, project, altered art, etc. (anything!!) with that song in our mind!!! I chose the song "THANK YOU FOR THE MUIC" from ABBA which matches to my sentiment "Thank You" actually the song should be Thank you for the Card ahhahahahahah LOL

Well anyway... I will enter this card also into following challenges :
