EveryBody Art/Colour Create/Cute Card Thursday and Pink Elephant


Another blustery day here so chose to stay in and finish this card from last night. This card is for a blogging buddies daughter who has Cystic Fibrosis an has not been well recently so thought I'd do my bit to cheer her up,. She's not registered with Post Pals but is just as deserving so am sending this card to Abbie (Lyndseys Daughter) as part of Cute Cards Thursday's request "Happy Mail". Chose to use a Gorjuss and have paper pieced her using digi download paper collection from Sweet Shoppe Designs.I based the colours on this weeks Colour Create which is Green/Blue, Pink Elephant which is 2 Blue/Green/White and Everybody Art "Friends & Family". I've stippled around the image again, really enjoying this atm and added some swirls for pattern. The sentiment was computer generated and used my SU punches. Retro punch for the flower and a piece of lace from stash. Coloured with Promarkers and added stickles to the flowers on her head. I do hope Abbie likes my card, and hope it puts a smile on her face. 
Thanks for looking!
