A Card For Katie

Katie Renz, an American crafter and blogger, is unfortunately, quite ill with stomach cancer at the moment, and this week over on the the color throwdown blog  they are asking not only to make a card using pink, brown and blue, but also, to send the card you made to Katie to cheer her up after her chemo.

I used Elzybels (shop now closed so no link, sorry) fairy stamp and coloured with copics in the colours for the challenge.  I struggled to find patterned papers in my stash that fit the colour theme and weren't too fussy when used together, so I opted for mostly plain or mottled papers in the colour themes, and I embossed the pink with an embossing folder.  Some glitter, paper lace and ribbon with a brad finish it off along with a handwritten sentiment.

My card is in the mail, winging its way across the Atlantic - hope it brings a short smile in a very hard time for Katie.

Some digi-stamp artists have grouped together to put a wonderful kit of stamps together and the proceeds from the sale are going to help Katie - you get great stamps and a great price - Katie gets some much needed help - it's a win-win if you ask me so head on over to Jak Heath's website to take a look at what's on offer!

I'm also going to enter this into the Cooking it up with Katie - Pink Embossing Challenge
