Sophisticats and Penny Black Challenges ;-)

I made this card following Stef's fabulous sketch on the SophistiCat Challenge
I also followed the colour theme on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge who are asking for Chocolate / Lemon / Pink :-)



I made this card for Paige. As many of you know Paige is a 13 year old young girl who was involved in a horrific boating accident and has had to have part of her arm amputated and has many months of surgeries and rehabilitation ahead of her, poor girl ;-( Erin of Scrap, Stamp and Be Merry is asking people to make a card for her and she has a terrific blog candy for those who make and send a card to her. so check out Erin's Blog for details



The image is Penny Black Rainin Daisies. I coloured the bear with prisma pencils and blended with odourless spirit. Everything else was coloured with copics. The papers are basic Grey ,,, from the Eva pad I think but don't quote me ! :-) I lost the cover ! The flowers are Prima, doodlebug brads and a lovely heart charm to finish. I chose not to add a sentiment to the front ,,, hope thats OK with the sketch DT !! :-)

Tomorrow we are having a VERY special 24 hour Challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge in celebration of World Cardmaking Day so pop over to the challenge blog tomorrow for details :-)
