Sending you a Big Hug! (card for Kate) and Sketch Challenge!!

The Sketch I've used for this card is from the Sketch Challenge I am running on this blog until Oct 12. You can read more about it here on the post below. Join in and you will have a chance to win 2 cute little Magnolia stamps.

I made this card for a little girl named Kate....who has a very serious brain tumour. You can read more about it right here Cards for Kate. I found out about this through the very talented Curt at Curt's can see his Gorgeous card for her right here.

I recieved this Sweet little Magnolia from Heidi the owner of "the Little Stamp Shoppe" and it's called Tilda with Kitty.....which is from the Magnolia Pet Collection 2008. I also used the "ML08 Swing" from the Magnolia and Lilac Summer Collection 2008. The sentiment I've used is part of a Fabulous stamp set I won over a year ago....and is created by Aud.

On to the card....I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Tilda is raised on foam pop ups. I stamped and colored the little kitties head separately and used a pop up to attach it. The sentiment is popped up as well. I only used part of the Magnolia swing...and added little brads and bows to the top of the ropes.

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - Georgia pacific, k&c wild raspberry, SU CS. Accessories -nesties, felt, flowers, button, embroidery floss, raffia lace, brads, stitching, lace, glitter and shimmerz.

Thanks for looking Everyone...and for all your Fabulous comments!!
