Card for a very brave little girl

Hey hey! I hope you are enjoying on your weekend. We're having a beeee-utiful day today. Sunny and pretty warm, but at the same time not too hot. Exactly the way I like it. He he. I had to work yesterday (in the morning) and in the afternoon my sweetie and I went to some furniture shops to have a look around (and of course I stopped by some other shops too :P). We are planning to buy most (if not all) furniture in Ikea, but we still wanted to check what's available here. Nothing really caught our eye though. I had the feeling that I was looking at the same pieces all the time, they were just positioned diferently. So much about their creativity. :S Luckily Ikea isn't very far from here. ;)

The card I want to show you today is made for a special girl. Have you heard about Maddy? I saw her picture on several blogs so I clicked on it to read her story. It's really touching. She's such a brave girl! If you want to read her story, please click here. It's really easy to make someone's day. Even a simple card will do. Maddy loves getting cards in the mail and I am more than happy to send her one.

Here's the card I made for her.

I chose the adorable Fumi with gift from Yumi and Fumi handmade as my main image. Isn't she a cutie? I colored her with Promarkers. The gift she is holding was paper pieced - first I stamped the image again on the kraft piece of paper and cut the gift out. Then I embossed the gift and added some glitter glue on the embossed parts.I raised Fumi on foam pads. The beautiful flowery paper I used for the background is from Studio Light. I used several different dies and punches on my card. The borders were made with my border punches, the small flowers with my flower punch, the "bigger" flowers are made with TH Tattered floral die, the ovals and the yellow "ornament" behind the ovals are Spellbinders dies and butterflies were made with Cheery Lynn die that was a gift from my sweet friend Rosie.The white oval behind Fumi was embossed with Cuttlebug's swiss dots embossing folder and the other white piece of cardstock was embossed with Craft concepts' cottage floral embossing folder. I inked TH flowers with TH tea dye DI which was also a gift from Rosie. Thank you so much sweetie!!! The pearls are from my stash and the ribbons are from Crafty ribbons - I used 35 mm New Turq satin ribbon and 25 mm grosgrain ribbon.
