Make A Child Smile

Here is a card I made today for this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge. Sue came up with a wonderful and very special dare....create a card to make a sick child smile and send it to one of the children listed on the Post Pals home page. Post Pals is a great idea and it was set up to create smiles for children with long term or life threatening illnesses. I will be posting my card off soon and hopefully it might raise a smile. I stamped the pixie image with black versafine and coloured her with shimmer paints. The corrugated card base was sprayed with various shades of pink Glimmer mist. The circles and scalloped mats were cut with Nestabilities in my Cuttlebug and I used rub on sentiments which I have had lying around for ages. The striped paper is a leftover strip and the ribbon is by Doodlebug. Finally I added a lilac Floradoodle secured with a daisy brad.

How cute is that Pixie!

The colouring in Shimmer paint looks fab and the bright and pretty colours are bound to bring a smile to one of the little one’s faces.
