CBD - Anything Goes Meljen's Designs

Hello everyone,  today I have the great opportunity to create a card using a design by Meljen's Designs.

Melissa is giving away the lovely prize of the winner's choice of 4 single digis!

I create a gift card using this great digi of a little bird taking a bath. 

 I decided that this would be great for a gift card for a special someone that needed a spa day. 

 The card base is cut 7" x 4" then scored at 3" and 6".   I originally planed for the folded lip to go on the outside, but after putting the picture on a belly-band it didn't look quite right.  The card holder is a 3.625" x 5.125" sealed and cut in half.  Then I used a 5/8" circle punch to create the finger hole. 

 I used a ribbon with wired edges for the belly band.  I figured that would give it strength to hold the card closed and help keep the image flat. 

 Thanks for stoping by today and taking a look at my project using Meljen's Designs.
