Tuesday Morning Sketches #122

Happy Tuesday! It's time for another Tuesday Morning Sketches challengeMelissa has drawn up another fabulous sketch for us this week. This layout is fairly clean and simple, but the placement of the ribbon makes it so elegant. Love it and will definitely use it again.

Our sponsor this week is Stretch n Bubbles,  play along for a chance to win a prize from them. And check out the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog for lots of great samples from the DT.

I've used a new image from Phindy's Place for this challenge, called Winter Bird. It was  hard to get a good photo of the sparkle, but it real life it is so shimmery, looks like real snow.

I really like how you added the border around the image - and a perfect one! I was just looking at it the other day...considering how good of an investment it might be. :)

I thought Linda was going to buy your card! Now I know she means that wonderful image. But I am glad I went back and looked at your whole blog. I subscribed sometime ago but did not know that I was not a follower - now I am!!! I looked at the card again and really appreciated more - the ribbon is perfect and so are those silver bells.
