RAK for Katie

If I haven't already told you, I am a challenge junkie. If I don't participate everyday I seriously get the shakes(not really, but you know what I mean). I once saw someone post that there needed to be a 12 step program, and I tell you what, I would be one of the first in line!!! This card is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I saw Sandy, aka sandrasmart64, post the other day that there was a young mom whose baby is very sick, and I wanted to make a card to send to her. You can get more info from Sandy.
This is one of the biggest cards I have ever made. It is an A6, which is 6 3/8 by 4 5/8(9 1/4 unfolded). I started with a Whisper White base, then Close to Cocoa. The DSP panel is Berry Bliss DSP, Pretty in Pink and then Purely Pomegranate. I stamped the Cherry Blossom branch stamp by Rubber Stampede on Whisper White with Black Stazon. It is colored in with SU markers. I sponged the edges with both Close to Cocoa and Pomegranate ink. The rest is pretty simple. I hope that this helps to brighten her day. If you expressed an interest in being in an RAK group, this would be the first assignment. Send me an email or leave a comment, and I will get you the address. Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
