Simon Says ,,,,,, Card for a Child :-)

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for our Distressing challenge, we had lots of gorgeous entries :-)

This week our challenge is to Make a Card for a Child

The Design team have all used stamps by Boefjes on their creations. You don't have to but we would like to see you use them if you have them :-)

The Design Team are also sending their cards to a child through Post Pals or Make a Child Smile. The children are all suffering from various illnesses and these cards help to put a smile on their face and also help to distract them while having to undergo often painful treatments. We would like you all to make your card for the challenge and send it to a sick child too :-)

Heidi will be giving away a $25 shopping spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store and she will pay for the shipping too :-)

For my card I used a Boefje stamp called Suzanne, isn't she lovely :-) I made a beach scene in the background using a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set :-) The image was coloured with copics and Suzanne was cut out and popped in the foreground.
The papers are Basic Grey and the flower is Prima which has been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. I used a sandal charm and a few Robins Nest Dew drops too :-) The sentiment is also from a Simon Says Stamp exclusive sentiment set :-) The flip flops are stickers and were a RAK from a blog buddy :-) Perfect finishing touch I thought :-)

Our GD Gunn and the DT have made some lovely cards so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)

For my card I used my lovely Sarah Kay stamp , I do love this one :-) I coloured the image with copics then dabbed it with the tip of the blender pen to try to create a velvet look ! I then added polar white flower soft to the trims for 'fur' :-)
The edges were inked with antique linen distress ink. I used liquid pearls for the holly berries and stickles for sparkle :-)

The papers are My Minds Eye and SU Close to Cocoa card. I used a Martha Stewart holly punch and Hero Arts red gems for berries. The flowers are Tim Holts Prima Poinsettia's

Here is Helen's fabulous sketch :-) The DT have all chosen to use it so pop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see their lovely cards :-)
