I can't imagine what it would be like to be told your child has cancer. My thoughts and prayers to all parents who are experiencing (or have experienced) this reality. The card I made to share today will find its way to Maddy, a beautiful little girl who knows all to well what it is like to face this battle. I pray that my card will inspire you to create and donate a card as well. Together we can spread love and support one card at a time. Click HERE for details.
My card was designed around a sketch challenge. For those of you new to challenges, sketch challenges provide a sketch and crafters are asked to create a project inspired by this sketch. Below is the sketch that we were asked to work with:
This challenge is being held by the awesome team at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.
Fight Cancer: I Can
Those of you who have Cricut cutting machines will most likely recognize this adorable critter/bear from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. Although it is one of my oldest cartridges, I find that it is still one of my favorites. To add even more cuteness to the critter, the edges were inked and she was given googly eyes.
The sentiment, as well as the frame for this card, were made using the Silhouette Cameo. A white paper flower was inked to make the edges orange.
The cancer awareness color for leukemia is orange. Since Maddy is battling leukemia, orange is a dominate color on this card and the color of the bear's ribbon! This ribbon was made using the Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge.
This card will be entered into the following challenges:
