Another Melody Card



Paper Makeup Stamps: World Card Making Day to make a new card with PMS stamps.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Make a card with a pull-out feature.
Splitcoast Featured Stamper Case a card by Clownmom

Here's another Melody card. You can scroll down and check out her story in my previous post if you haven't read that yet. :) For the first time I did not glitter a fairy's wings! (gasp) I wanted the stickles to stand out on her belt and the white part of her dress. I wish you could see the sparkle better in the photos above. I used a blender pen and ink to color her in and tried to make the little bird she's singing to resemble a robin this time. Putting the saying on a pull-out tag was the perfect way to use a larger sentiment without making a bigger card or covering up part of Melody. And I loved Clownmom's card (linked above), so that gave me a great starting point. I switched out the black for brown, only added scallops on the bottom of the image mat, and made my sentiment tag a pull-out one instead of dangling. I still liked the ribbon going across the upper corner though, so I kept that on my card too.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day! :)
