Thursday Challenge @ MelJen's Designs

Hello Friends! It's time for another Thursday Challenge at MelJen's Designs. Our challenge this week is

"You've Been Framed!"
Use a frame on your project

Sound like fun? Yes! Sure, it does! So grab a MelJen's Designs image and create and share with us over on the challenge blog. There is a 50% off sale going on right now in the Shop, so scoot on over and add a few new digital stamps to your collection.

I decided to feature these sweet Retro Cherries. I love cherry images and these are delish!

Keep in mind, digital stamps can be re-sized to fit whatever project you're working with. I was able to size my image, so it would fit neatly into my scalloped frame. I used OA Modern Homemaker patterned paper. I think it adds to the retro feel that I was going for here. After coloring my image with Copic markers, I applied some Crystal Effects to make the cherries shiny. Fun! Fun!

I know that a lot of us have children going back to school now but, take a little time to be creative and join in on the challenge. You could win FREE digital stamps of your choice. Just be sure to use a MelJen's Designs image in order to be included in the weekly random drawing.

Thanks for dropping in today! I appreciate the visit.

Your cute card definitely has a retro look, Barb. I love the bow - it adds a nice pop! Have a great weekend :)

Hi Barb! My dad is visiting from CA and I'm a little behind on blog reading. I love this card! It's so sweet and refreshing. The colors are wonderful and the frame around those neat cherries is great. The bow is the "cherry on top" of your cherry card! *Ü*
