Card for Haeli

Hiya everyone,


While I was doing my blog rounds, I read the following on  Charlene's latest post:


This week's Teapot Tuesday Destination is a sweet little 6th grade girl named Haeli who is undergoing chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.  If you have a minute, please read Haeli's story here.   



Here is my card for the very arty - crafty Haeli. I hope it brings her cheer and makes her spirits better.






Materials used:


Solid creme coloured cardstock


Stamp: Penny Black - 'Out and About' coloured by Zeenya (my design consultant) with Darwent water colour pencils. 


Distress ink : Faded jeans


Flowers : you don't need to guess - my home made ones


Sprigs : actually from a tree punch!!!


Fiskar's border weave punch 


Ribbons - turquoise and royal blue from my stash


Gems - Papermania




I am going to enter this for : 


Michelle's Monday Linky party

Hi Monica - it's such a coincidence - I have read a post about Haeli this evening, and am planning something for her.
Your card is just gorgeous - I can't believe you've made those flowers - and the ribbon border looks so stunning. I'm sure Haeli will love her card.
Love, Andrea xx

Beautiful Monica. This will really cheer up Haeli. What a sad story. I lost my very good friend to ovarian cancer at the age of 37. I can't imagine what these parents and Haeli are going through.
