My Card For Danny ~ CTD301 & JAI223

Little Danny Nickerson is battling brain cancer.  He is about to turn 6years old.  His wish for his birthday was to receive lots of cards.  I made this for him and will be mailing it off today.  Here's a link to the news story about Danny....maybe you could mail him a card too!  His address is:
Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035

I used a couple different challenges to create this card.  The color challenge from Color Throwdown 301 and the sketch from Just Add Ink 223.

Since Danny is only turning 6, I wanted to use a fun, animal image.  I stamped on DSP and used the paper piecing technique, plus popped some of the images and sentiment up to add some fun.  I'm sure he'll love each and every card he receives.  I'm sure his family would appreciate prayers too!

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Life in the Forest, Hardwood, So Happy For You
Ink: Crumb Cake, Memento Black, Tangelo Twist
Paper: Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, White, Crumb Cake; Moonlight, Fresh Prints, & Sweater Weather DSP
Accessories: Circle Thinlets die, sponge

Thanks for taking a peek!
