Kickin' it for Michelle

Hey there!
Thanks for visiting my blog today!

As many of you have heard, the uber-talented Michelle, one of the DT members of A Spoonful of Sugar, had a terrible accident and lost one of her eyes. That means lots of new challenges for her, and a long time for recovering. I got really sad when I heard about this accident, and my thoughts flew to Michelle. At A Spoonful of Sugar, they've started a "Kickin' it for Michelle" Card Drive. And off course I wanted to make a card for Michelle. She has inspired me many times with her beautiful creations and her funny stories about her life on her farm in Texas.
For my card, I've used the July sketch from the CLP Challenge, and I'm entering their challenge. I'm also entering this week's challenge at Flutterby Wednesday's, where the challenge is to use 3 or more layers and, off course, an angel, butterfly or fairy !! :)

I wanted the card to be a "happy" one with bright and cheerful colors. And I wanted it to be "me" - so I had to add lots of glitters and butterflies along with bright colors. I used glimmermist color Sweet Pea for the doily edge and the background label. And lots of Stickles, off course! ;)

The fantastic donkey image from Meljen's Design, sitting on the "Glimmermisted" background :)

I've added some Stickles to the rose too :)

The butterfly on the outside. One layer white vellum and one layer silver carton (The same carton I used for the "Best Wishes" sentiment) And off course - more stickles!! LOL

The inside.

The sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs. I've added a little Glimmermist Sweet Pea to it and since the printer ink wasn't waterresistant, it floated a little, but in fact I don't think that matters too much...

The butterflies on the inside :)

Stamps: Meljen's Design - Donkey Smiles freebie, Sentiment stamp from Raindrop Echo Designs
Coloring: watercolor pencils
Papers: bought at Nille and Notabene
Others: Glassene Butterfly Punch and Doily Lace Edge Punch from Martha Stewart. Halfpearls and flowers from Kort og Godt. Spellbinders Small Labels. Tattered Angels Glimmermist Sweet Pea. Ranger's Stickles Frosted Lace and Crystal. Silver stickers from Nille. White Vellum paper. All edges sewed on my sewing machine.

I hope I'll get to post this card for Michelle this week - and I hope all the embellies will survive all the way to Texas... LOL
Thank you for visiting, and thanks to all of you who makes my day by leaving comments to my creations!!
