Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 314

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Hi there, crafty friends!
I have a special card to share with you today.
One of the members of Pretty Pals has asked us if we had any get well cards in hands. It is for this 12 year old girl who is bravely fighting leukemia at St.Jude's Hospital. Many of us immediately agreed to send one to her. 
I had to make one, and making a card for a pre-teen girl is so hard! My niece is 12 years old as well, and she is still innocent but wants to be treated as a grown up...
I got inspirations from Cupcake inspirations Challenge, the colors were perfect!

The pinks are sweet, but with the orange, it makes it not childish. 
And here is my card.

I know I just used this stamp set, but isn't my little nurse perfect!?
She is prescribing this brave, strong girl some sparkles;-) We're never too young or too old for some sparkles, right!?

I stamped the images with the Blushing Bride Ink Pad, then watercolored them. 

I used sweet and girly elements like the doily, scallop frame in Crumb Cake (it's so soft with light pink!), her new prescription sequins... but again, I couldn't go too sweet so I did some quantity control on them (LOL) 
The sentiment is perfect for this amazing girl, don't you agree? 

I really hope this will cheer her up even a little bit, she needs every little good thought to beat this cancer and get all better!
