The Destination Station this week is to Shari, she is Cindy's (Mothermark's) niece. She is battling breast cancer right now, and could use some cheering up! If you'd like to help cheer Shari up, just follow the link for all the info. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...1-post171.html
I used Breast Cancer Stella for my card, she's comes with several sentiments, but I really like this one because it's funny and positive! I coloured with copics, and paper pieced her dress and shoes. Then I added crystal effects to her glasses.
The card base is pear pizzazz, and then a layer of dp from Basic Grey's Lemonade, I'm so glad I had paper with cherries! I wanted to sew around the edges, but then I'd have to drag my machine out and find some thread blah..blah...blah so instead I pierced all around the edges and used my pear pizzazz marker to make it look like thread!
The main image is popped up, and I finished it off with some ribbon and a brad made with the dp!
