Thinking Of You

Hi everyone.

Well I was giving a tough order today for a card for a lady who is starting chemo for breast cancer on Monday. Her boss wanted a card that didnt trivialise what she had but also didnt pretend it wasnt happening.

I got the cure for Katie images from Stamp Insanity and this is what I came up with.

I stayed with pink as it is the breast cancer colour, I coloured the image with pro markers. Papers are old bits from my bit box lol. Flowers and pins from Wild Orchid Crafts. Doilie and lace from stash too. Image and sentiment from Stamp Insanity.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

The Sweet Stop - sketch
Digis with attitude - anything goes
Stamp Something - use a digi
Tellen's Place - embellish, embellish, embellish (atleast 2 embellies)

Would love to know what you think? Have I gone too cheesy or is it sensitive enough?

Thanks for looking!
