Peace, man... and a blog award...

I took on my own Random Stamp Challenge! I had created this peace medallion & file tab last Christmas (yes, that is Christmas 2007), and threw them in my 'maybe I'll use this sometime' pile. And I DID!

I really liked how the snowflakes were on the circle around the peace image... I wish I would have used some Stickles on them before I mailed this card off!! Dang it.

Stamps: Holiday Magic, Circle Sampler, Tag Tidbits
Paper: Bazzill Mono-Violets & Mono-Blue Greens, White UltraSmooth
Inks: Violette & Water Lily Green Palettes
Other: McGill File Tab punch, Marvy's Giga Scallop & Super Jumbo Circle punches

The front of the card base is cut short so I could attach the tab, and the bottom teal piece of cardstock is actually on the inside base of the card. This was a VERY quick card (duh, Barb... since half of it was already done before I started), and I really like how it turned out.
What do you think?

A fellow Angel, Maria, was a sweetie and gave me a blog award! She also happened to be my Paper Wings Secret Sister this year!! Thank you so much, Maria!! Here is the little award excerpt:
This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement [although, I did give myself 'props' in my last post!!]. 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.
I hereby send these off to all of the wonderful ladies that have participated in my Random Mail Stamp Challenge:
