A Card for Michelle O :-)

I think everyone has heard about Michelle's nasty accident which happened while tending to her much loved donkeys.You can read about it on her blog Tina Wenke has designed a lovely 'Michelle's Donkey' digi image for us to download from the Stampavie DT blog and make a donation towards Michelle's fund :-)

I follwed Sem's fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge to make this card ,, nice and easy, thanks Sem :-)
I used a combination of Prima pencils and copics to colour the image. I coloured the edges with stormy sky distess ink ,, the Basic Grey Granola papers have also been inked :-) I made the flower using Tim Holtz Tattered floral dies, coloured with stormy sky ink and scrunched :-)You can see Christine's tutorial on how to make them.:-) I added star dust stickles a butterfly charm and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops for bling and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set

Thanks for looking :-) I hope this fab fundraising effort by Heidi at Stampavie not only raises enough money to cover Michelle's medical bills ,, but lets hope there will be some leftover too for her to enjoy a little break to recouperate too :-)

now all I need is Michelle's address and I will pop this card in the post for her ,, hope she likes it !! :-)
