Thinking of you, Denise.

This is a very special tribute card to Denise Clark who runs the Stamping Vacation blogsite!
Without going into too much detail, this is a trying time of the year for Denise & her family & all the DT members of the Stamping Vacation blog have decided to come together and make Denise a few cards, sending her a few smiles along the way!

The image for my card comes from a Precious Moments coloring pages site.
Very appropriate image for the "For Who" challenge over at the Stamping Vacation blog. The challenge is to make a card "for someone who needs a hug".
This is for you, Denise.
 It's in the mail to you as you read this!

So there are a few things going on with this card. Good and bad.
First of all, my digis are smeary, so I apologize for that, but hey, it goes to show that I can't ALWAYS be perfect . LOL (i now have to print them on a differnt printer)
Secondly, my copic marker that I was making dark streaks in her hair with, 'calfed on me' (aka- went bizerk) & left a puddle of ink on her hair, of course you can't see it, as the butterfly is hiding it! Sorry! I new I didn't use copics for a reason!
Thirdly, I added lilttle blingy flowers to her dress. They are tiny and this took quite a while, but I thought they suited the DP wonderfully.

And a card recipe:

Sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe & it fit into my butterfly punch just perfectly!
DP is from a paper pack called Teen Prints.
All ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbons
SU border punch for bottom of card
Sketch is MOJO Monday- LAST WEEK! Doh!!

And a little reminder of the Stamping Vacation BLOG HOP starting Sept 25 til Sept 26
Homemade with a HOP!
Yes, a blog hop featuring homemade embellishments!
