Shane's Wish...

There's been a lot of buzz around bloggyland about a seven year old named Shane the past month or so. If you haven't heard about Shane, click here to learn more.

Who could refuse... I've been meaning to mail off a card for a some time now! I managed to work this card into my schedule today and it's off to Canada tomorrow! I pray he achieves his dream.

I stamped my Joann's $pot cupcake image on SU! White Confetti cardstock, then punched it out using the giga scallop square. I proceeded to cut out the frosted layer and applied Barbara Twombley's ultrafine Angel Dust glitter and added the watercolored cherry with dimensionals. After rummaging through my paper I came up with the silver "ridged" cardstock for the liner... LOOKS just like the real McCoy! Pierce and set aside.

I chose SU! Ballet Blue for my card base. The SU! Green Galore cardstock was embossed using the Cuttlebug A2 Happy Birthday embossing folder, swiped with SU! White Craft ink using a sponge and embellished with three coordinating mini brads. A border of SU! Marigold Morning cardstock layered with SU! Real Red grosgrain ribbon and pierced on either side of the ribbon. The majority of layers adhered using dimensionals.

I hope you'll consider creating or purchasing a card (your local dollar store) to send Shane and help to make his WISH COME TRUE! What a minor request to fulfill! *wink*

I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
