Card for Jade/Penny Black Challenge - Week 36

What terrible news I awoke to this morning, the news that Jade possibly only has months to live. It saddens me to think what this young lady/mother is going through at the moment, no one should have to go through this but to think of someone so young succumbing to this terrible disease is heartbreaking. A very kind lady on the Docrafts forum has kindly offered to deliver any cards that fellow crafters wish to make for Jade to her ex partner Jeff Brazier who will in turn deliver them to Jade. She has already delivered approximately 50 cards to Jeff and will deliver any further cards that people wish to send. I was so glad to hear this as I had indeed been thinking of making a card for Jade and sending it to her agent with the hope that it would be passed on. I made the card as bright and cheerful as possible hoping that it will indeed brighten her day. I am sure she will be overwhelmed with the amount of cards being sent.

This card also doubles as my entry for the Penny Black challenge this week. This week there is the chance of winning a lovely stamp called "Wooly Dames" which is absolutely gorgeous.

The elements I have used for this card are:-

Image - Penny Black - "Crossing Bridges"
Image coloured with Promarkers and Copics

Hints of sakura "Clear Star" to add sparkle

Glossy Accents also used on flowers
Papers - "Me and my big ideas"

Bazzil Bling Card
KARS Pearl Adhesive Stones

Brads "Making Memories"

Flowers and buttons from stash

Ribbon - Doodlebug Boutique Trims - Limeade Assortment

I hope you like the card.
Thanks for looking.

Joy xx
