2 Sisters Challenge ~ Thinking Of You

Today is our very first challenge of the new year at 2 Sisters Challenges. We are continuing last week's theme onto this week's challenge. We would like to get together as many cards as we possibly can to take to the transplant wards at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass. So what we are asking you to do for this week's challenge is to create a card with the theme of THINKING OF YOU. You can also use HELLO, JUST A NOTE & JUST FOR YOU as the sentiment on your card. Then we ask that you write a note of encouragement to the inside of your card and address the envelope "ANY PATIENT" and mail it to Stacy at:
Stacy Walker
15 Willow Way
Swanville, Maine 04915
Then once you have entered your card and mailed it off to Stacy please send her a quick email at to let her know it is on it's way. She will be taking a trip to Brigham & Women's Hospital on January 30th and will deliver the cards to the nurses to hand out to the patients. We are hoping that when they receive their card it will brighten their day a little bit.
This week we are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps. Stitchy gave the DT some images and a paper pack to play around with this week. I used one of the images from Lil Diva's called Flower Fairy. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added crystal stickles to the fairy wings.

I created my card using peach, dark peach and white cardstock. The base of my card is peach backed in dark peach. I then punched a strip of dark peach using a doily lace edge border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts. I added a strip of white ribbon to the top of the punched strip of cardstock and added crystal stickles to the edges of the ribbon. I cut the image out in a circle and backed it in dark peach and then again in white and added crystal stickles to the white. I backed my sentiment in the peach cardstock. I finished off my card by adding a few pearls and a white ribbon bow. I also added stickles to the bow edges.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
