Yes, I apparently did. Grr, graphic design is not my domain :-)
Anyway, I completely reworked the OSGeo business card desing today
and now the logo is a pure SVG vector graphic instead of embedded image.

I've attached OSGeo_Business_Card_mloskot.tar.gz package with the new  

 From the README.txt:

OSGeo Business Card by mloskot

This is design of OSGeo Business Card

The design is based on printed versions of OSGeo cards I collected
some time ago from Tyler and Arnulf, so I'm not the author of it.
I've just reproduced it to editable form in SVG format.

There are two versions included:
OSGeo_Business_Card_wTag - logo with OSGeo tag/motto
OSGeo_Business_Card_wFullname - logo with full name of the OSGeo

The card design was produced with Inkscape (http://www.inkscape.org/).
The SVG files are considered as an editable source of the OSGeo card.
Additionally, EPS and PDF files are provided for convenience.

The OSGeo logo was converted from from OSGeo_CMYK_wTag.eps file to SVG  
using Scribuss (http://www.scribus.net/) with applied color management.
So, the source CMYK colors have been translated to the following RGB  

Green: 72,194,75
Light Green: 164, 194, 75
Pale Green: 200, 219, 145

Typography used in the design follow the OSGeo Branding Guide
available at http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo/logos/OSGeo_logo_guide.pdf

I'm sending it to the public mailing list, so I believe I should  
include the following note:
