Have A Wheelie Cool Day - for DCM and Cute Card Thursday




Daring Cardmakers dare this week, is to make a card suitable for a child. They have a link to an organization called Post Pals, who work with children who are seriously ill. I defy anyone to look on the site and not be moved. I made this card for a little boy of 9 called Ethan, and will be mailing it tomorrow. I hope he likes it! The image is a download from the Boys and Toys collection from Lily Boos Boutique, coloured with copic markers and a few highlights added with a white inkessentials pen. The paper is called graph strips and simple graph by Simply Luxe. The word cool is a foam thickers alpha, and the tiny black stickers are by making memories.
This just fits in with the challenge on Cute Card Thursday this week as well, which was to use wheels on a card.
