Melissa's Sketch

Well I've been a bit quiet of late due to a very sore back. I was silly & tried to move some things that were just way too heavy for little ol me & my back objected quite strongly.
Sitting down is pretty painful so I haven't even been able to drown my sorrows in some creativity, that's the worse part for sure. Where there's a will, there's a way but, & one of my very favourite designers, Melissa Philips, has an awesome sketch on her blog that I just can't not play along with. So I made this card standing at the kitchen bench today, LOL I should have made a Get Well card really, shouldn't I?
I've used My Mind's Eye papers, the scallop is cut from some MM Noteworthy paper, the scallop chipboard oval is Maya Road & I used a Stampin Up birthday stamp.

Now I must get this back better before Friday as we are having our July Cyber Crop over at Scrap Pile. The theme is Christmas in July so I've got a Christmas card challenge organised if you'd like to come & join in. It can never be too early to get a start on those Christmas cards.

Sorry to hear about your back, hope you are on the mend. Its a great card you completed. I may be crazy, but can I ask what a cyber crop is, do you just do something digital and then email it somewhere.

Love your card Jewls, the way you mix pp is always gorgeous.

Hope your back is on the mend.

Sooooo beautiful! Love those tiny prints in the paper--the colors are so sweet and this is full of warmth! Gorgeous. Hope you're feeling better today. Thanks for playing along.
