Artful Sentiments Challenge and an award

Morning , All ! I needed a masculine card and so here is what I came up with. This stamp is an old one by Stampington . I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto Neenah white and then stamped two more times , one on each side of the main image. The center image was colored in with the Artful Sentiments Copic colors for the week . The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps " Smooth Sailing" . The paper is from Basic Grey and the green dp by an unknown source. The upper left corner was pierced and the edges were all distressed with Antique Linen ink. I added ribbon tabs to the right edge of the image and left everything as simple and masculine as I could. I think it will be just right for the recipient.

Now for the award :
Dottie surprised me with this really sweet award the other day. Isn't this a creative and colorful award ?! Dottie, thanks so much !!! I hope you all will go visit her blog . She puts together such gorgeous and creative floral arrangements AND she has some blog candy going on. Go check her out.
