Color Cahllenge week 21

Marjorie's in Summer mode this week. Her color choices were Star Spangled Blue, Topiary, Sunflower and Cranberry. I needed to make a card for a little girl who is undergoing chemo for leukemia. Her adult friends are asking everyone to send a card to Mackenzie this coming Fri, the 6th. I was waiting for Marjorie to post her color challenge so I could use that to make my card for Mackenzie. Once again, I dug into my stash for inspiration. I stamped the solid flower from Rustic Flowers stamp set, then mixed some Aztec Gold Pearl Ex in Mod Podge and "painted" my flower. Let it dry, then using my black marker, went around the entire outside edge of the flower with dashes. The clear button is CTMH and has a piece of red Magic Mesh and Sunflower waxy flax tied on. The entire flower is pop-dotted. The stripe and circle cardstock is unknown from my stash . I drew different designs on the circles for some added interest. I used Say It In Style stamp set for the sentiment.

If anyone is interested in sending a card to Mackenzie on Friday, email me or leave a comment and I'll send you the address. I'm not gonna post it here! And the card does not have to be handmade! So you non-crafters can send one too! Help make a sick little girl smile! ;)

What a great cause for a card! I'd love to have the address so I can mail one to her. I like your flower and all the doodling you did on the circles! I'm sure it'll bring a smile to her face! Thanks for playing!
