A Donkey For Michelle
I created this card for Michelle Oatman, who lost one of her eyes in an accident. hopefully this card drive will help to cheer her up. If you aren't familiar with Michelle's story, you can read all about Michelle and her journey to recovery, on her blog, here.
The image was a freebie from Whimsy Stamps, artist Melissa Jenkins, created especially for the Kickin It For Michelle, card drive. I colored the image with Promarkers.
I used Martine's sketch at Simon Says Stamp, for this card.
The pink card base is textured cardstock that I have had for over a year. It came in a tablet and I realized after I got it, that the textured cardstock isn't good for punching and things, so I use it for card bases, to try and use it up.
The gingham DP is new, from a tablet I purchased recently at hobby Lobby. The other papers are from my stash. The flowers are by Prima and the buttons are recycled and reused, from an old shirt I threw away when I cleaned out closets and discarded unwanted clothes. The white sheer ribbon with the thin silver line is also from my stash. (sorry you cant see the sheer ribbon very well, but you can see the silver streak in it) I used adhesive pearls for the flower centers.
