This card is being used for two challenge entries!
First, I would like to give a BIG round of applause to Cammie. I have seen on numerous blogs the entries for her challenge, and I wanted to play along, not just because there are tons of companies donating candy to give away (almost $1,000 worth of goodies) but because Cammie is doing something for a WONDERFUL cause! Cammie's grandmother passed away in June due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease. To honor her grandmother Cammie has put together a challenge for people to make a card and send it to anyone who works with Alzheimer's patients to THANK them for all that they do! I am keeping mine local and sending my thank you note to our area nursing home for all the wonderful work that they do! To read more about Cammie's story click HERE!
Secondly, Wednesday was the official start of the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog! I was so excited for this blog to start! I am HOOKED on WOJ stamps...and can't wait to get some more!!! The first challenge was to create a card with one of the wonderful Katharina's sketches! I had so much fun making this card...and knowing it was being made for such a great cause there was much love put into making this one!
Here is Katharina's sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch! I hope you enjoy! This is once again Melinda Blowing Kisses (can you tell that I REALLY love this stamp?!) My ribbons stay "thankful" and "grateful" which I thought were awesome to add! There are some colored leaves that I picked up at Walmart and some spare parts flowers with a little leave charm in the middle that I picked up at Archivers for decorations on the top of the card.
On the inside of the card I used a cream colored base paper. Stamped the swirl (from my Baroque Motif SU set) with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in walnut, then used the little flower (also in the same stamp set) stamped with Versamark and embossed with TH gold embossing powder! I think it turned out as elegant at the front of the card!
I wish I could be there when the recipients open the card! I hope they feel as wonderful as we are thankful for all they do for our loved ones!
