Tall and Skinny

Hello My Friends, Followers and Viewers,
Guess what?  It is snowing in my area.  I'm so excited because I love to see snow falling. Every since I was a child, snow has always been beautiful to me.  Yes, it can be dangerous to those who don't know how to drive in it.  It was reported this morning about the many accidents that had occurred due to the snow.  That's the "tall and skinny" about the snow:
 

Speaking of "tall and skinny", what comes to your mind?  A person, a pair of  jeans, a discussion, a greeting card, embellishment, etc.?  On the MojoMonday blog post for this week, their challenge is called "tall and skinny".  I made a card with their suggested measurement, however, I had to use my own creativity to make the card.  This card measure 3.5" by 5.5".  I've used smooth cardstock for the base and corrugated cardstock for the mats and heart.  The sentiment was cut from Artfully Sent cartridge, and the rose is a Recollections dimensional sticker:

Since I was working with the corrugated cardstock, I went ahead and added a second card. This one has the smooth cardstock for the base; the corrugated cardstock for the mat; a lacy ribbon topped with a smooth ribbon; a corrugated "tall and skinny heart" with a die cut pattern paper heart layered on top of it; a Recollection rose with a dried fern underneath; a hand written sentiment on a scrap piece of designer paper:
