Hi there! This weeks challege at Jazzy Paper Designs is inspired by the album cover: The Sidewinder by Lee Morgan, pictured above. Lee Morgan was a leading jazz trumpeter and composer. He recorded up until a day before his death in 1972 at the age of 33 in NYC. He was a member of the Dizzie Gillispie Band at age 18 and later recorded 25 albums, working with 250 musicians during his short life. Here's an audio clip of his song Sidewinder if you'd care to listen. It is really quite moving.
The flower stamp is Penny Black "Clique" which I've attached pearls to the middle of. The sentiment is also by Penny Black. I punched the flowers around the front window and added gems. The sentiment is on the inside of the card. I like how it turned out. I'm going to give it to my best friend Teresa in PA. The sentiment makes me think of her. Thoughts of her truly do fill the garden of my life!
