A card for Chase...


Hello again. So this is a card for my 13 year-old nephew.  He was injured pretty seriously in a bicycle accident.  He tried to land a jump and instead, landed in the hospital with a lacerated liver and fractured forearm...poor kid!  He's home now, recovering. So I thought I'd send a card to wish him well!  I don't have much that works with boys his age, so I did my best!  I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. I embossed the sentiment on the tag and inside the card.  The image, GF "Edward," is colored with watercolor pencils and highlighted with white gel pen. The edges of the tag and the pocket are distressed with a sanding sponge to fit Cupcake Craft's challenge.  I did some faux stitching and doodling to fit the challenges over at Papertake Weekly and Three Clovers (respectively).  The pocket fits the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday "hidden treasures."  The ribbon qualifies over at Paper Maniac's challenge.  The embellishments (and they are aplenty!) fit the LaLa Land challenge. I think that's it for now!  One more to come in a bit!  Thanks for stopping by :)
