Be Unique

I have been designing and making cards to send to Send A Smile 4 Kids who send them to children's hospitals for staff and children. I know how hard it is for teen girls when they are ill. They struggle with self image anyway. And when suffering a severe illness it is even worse.
I saw this quote at my local Curves. It doesn't have a credit so I don't know who wrote it. But I think it is so appropriate for a teen girl.
I did the sentiment on the computer. Sponged 2 shades of blue and added punched clouds.The birds on a wire is a Spellbinders die. I cut them with a brown scrap and then did one with red. Snipped out one red bird and glued it over the matching brown one. A little Wink of Stella on the red bird makes it shine. There was a little too much space below the sentiment so I added a strip of green cut with grass making shears and sponged on some darker green at the bottom. I am hoping this will inspire and cheer up a sick teen.
Also am submitting to anything goes challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.


  1. Oh, Donna, I LOVE this card. That sentiment is wonderful and perfect for your lines of birds. The Wink of Stella added just the right amount of sparkle, which makes all of us feel prettier, right? Fabulous job!

  2. What a beautiful card. Love the details and sentiment. Thanks for your entry in our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.
