A card for Victoria

If you have a chance to send a card for Victoria Enmon, please do so. She has a cancer and her teacher is trying to get cards mailed to Victoria from each State. To learn more about Victoria's story and how to send a card, go to Courtney’s blog.

Here's a card that my daughter Toni created for Victoria. I let her read Victoria's story and said "Mom, I want to make a card for her" and so she did.

And, here's my card for Victoria. This is also a Sketch Challenge 142 from Splitcoaststampers.

The stamp is called Flower Bug by Whipper Snapper Design. I love all their stamps and just wish I could get all of them (*hint, for my Mom and my sister). The image and sentiment are stamped in Stãz-On Jet Black Ink and colored with Prima Watercolor Pencils. She’s also covered with Crystal Effects for some shine. The background polka dots were stamped with Classic Stampin’ Pad Basic Black Ink from Stampin’ Up using a # 2 pencil eraser.

Stamps: Flower Bug from Whipper Snapper Design and sentiment by Kolette Hall from Michael’s $ bin

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black and Brocade Blue CS from
Stampin' Up

Ink: StāzOn Jet Black

Accessories: Large Scallop Scissors, Crystal Effects and Dark Blue Stickles
