Karma from Sketch 105

It was karma when I opened my email this morning and found the latest sketch post over at Card Patterns. Last night I started making a card for a little girl who has been undergoing some serious spinal surgery this past week (her grandma is a StampTV friend of mine).  Things have been very serious for little Minnie and I wanted to send her a card that would tell her I was thinking of her and praying for her.  I had the stamp(Just got it from Whimsy Stamps) and the idea of what I wanted to do, but I didn't have a sketch (one that I liked anyway) to build around it.  Sketch 105 at Card Patterns is just the sketch to make a perfect surrounding for Jelly Bean (That's the little elephant's name).  


Here's the sketch to follow:



Here's my card for Minnie using the sketch.
   




Doesn't he just looked all propped up on a soft and girly girl bed with lots of lace and pastel colors?  This stamp just makes me smile every time I see it and I'm hoping that he brings some to Minnie.  If you're a person who prays, I'm sure Minnie's family would appreciate you sending one up on her behalf.  Things have not been looking good for this sweet little girl these past few days.  Thanks, if you do.  


Details and supplies for this card:  CS is Gina K Design Pure Luxury White and Vibrant Violet.  DP is from Basic Grey 6X6 Wisteria pad.  Elephant Stamp is "Jelly Bean" created by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps and I paired it with a sentiment stamp from the Showtime StampTV Kit "Picutre It".   I colored Jelly Bean with Copic Markers.  Ribbon, lace and button from my stash, butterfly is from a MS punch.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!
