Happy Friday, friends! I have a special card to share with you today. The current challenge at The Color Throwdown features not only an awesome color combo, but this week we are being asked to make a card for fellow crafter Katie Renz, who was recently diagnosed with gastric cancer. I don't know Katie personally, but I was very moved by her story and the overwhelming number of stampers who have rallied behind her. In addition to the CTD card drive, this site is collecting donations for Katie, and in return you will receive a fantastic collection of digital stamps. Click on over and check them out if you're interested--there are some really wonderful images!
Here is the color combo from CTD and the sketch I used, CPS #200.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Spring Rain, white), Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Year of Flowers: Mums), Fiskars (All Year Greetings)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo), Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Versamark
Tools: Spellbinders (Labels Three), Papertrey Ink (Book Print impression plate), Martha Stewart (border punch), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories: Stampendous (clear embossing powder), Me & My Big Ideas (rhinestones), thread
The inside of the card is very simple, leaving room for me to write a personal message to Katie.
