A Day Late, but Meljen's ... Not a dollar short :)

Okay... I think I must be a whole week off! I thought I had until next week to get this card posted. Ummm... Nope!! I'm late! With the kids back in school and all of the open house, meet the teachers, get a physical, this and that and never ending Ahhhhh!!!!! I think time is just way off for me LOL I'm going to make it my sole purpose this weekend to get back on track!  So... although it is a day late, here is my card for Challenge #174 - Fancy Fonts at Meljens Designs:

So, I used three separate images on this invitation. I used Smokin' Hot, Big Burger and BBQ Fixins. I colored all of them with Copic, although I have lost my list I made LOL Just another thing to add to my Oops today!! I decoupaged all three of the images. I tried to show that the best I could. The lettering and stamps are all from Stampin' Up. I love that fancy lettering so much! And it just fits a fun BBQ date! I stamped on the envelope as well to add that little bit to it. The scallops are punched, the scalloped circle and regular circle are both Spellbinder dies. The papers are all scraps that I had in my multiple scrap boxes LOL Still trying to use those scraps up a bit. And that will do it! So sorry its late everyone, but I hope you enjoy it! Can you really go wrong with Meljen Images though??  Definitely Not!
