Playing with Meljen's Designs

Well hello there! How is everyone getting along this summer with all the wacky weather we've been having? I am so glad this season is almost over and I look forward to cooler temps.

I have a card to share today. I played along with the challenge issued at Meljen's Designs. Melissa draws the cutest images! When I saw the Harvest Snowman, I knew I had to add him to my collection. The challenge is "Tie a Ribbon". We were to add ribbon to our creation. I also used a sketch from i{heart}2stamp. I have not used many sketches, but I think I'm warming up to the idea. It was quite a time-saver.

What an adorable card Barb. I love that snowman and how you also finished the inside of the card.

Your card is sweet! I like the die cuts and the distressing. And the inside is just as nice as the outside :) It's always great to see your art.
