YAY she's back! I've missed your beautiful talent here Melody and it's so great to see you creating again and sharing with us here at SSW! This one is gorgeous - pretty girlie colors, love that vintage feel here with the lace and tattered edges. You have such a flair with the embellishments that truly enrich your cards. I'm just giddy to have you back playing in the SSW challenges!
