Card for Burn Victim Ethyl

My friend Sheree from Vancouver Island Craft Junkie told us all about a customer from her shop up in Campbell River who burned her face and was undergoing a number of grafting surgeries.  Ethyl is in a lot of pain and could use some encouragement.

Sheree has challenged us all to make a card for Ethyl and send it to Sheree’s shop.  Just email Sheree or leave a comment on her post and she will send you the information.  Sheree will collect all the cards and get them to Ethyl next week.

My card is made with one of my favorite papers from the Prima Fairy Flora collection.  I wanted the beauty of the paper to show through so I tried not to cover it up too much.  The sentiment and butterfly flourish is from Our Daily Bread Designs Get Well set.


Card Recipe:
Stamps: ODBD Get Well
CS and Papers: Prima Fairy Flora, Wild Wasbe
Ink: Momento Bamboo Leaves
Embellishments: MS butterfly punch and SU butterfly die, SU Pearls,  
ZVA Creative pearls, Spellbinders Fancy Tags die

In honor of Ethyl, I will enter this card into the following challenges:

Hop over to Vancouver Island Craft Junkie to read Ethyl’s story and please consider making an encouraging card for her.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Nancy
