Dare U 2 make a child smile this week

Hi folks!
This weeks challenge over on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp is all about Gingham and stitching. We're being sponsored by Post Pals (more about that in a mo) and there is a fabby prize on offer. If you like Martha Stewart's punches, then hop on over to the blog to see which one is up for grabs.
My card features Rosabella & Drake, they have been coloured in with Koi water colours and their wings have been glittered. The gingham paper is from a Joanna Sheen pack I've had for a long time. I hand stitched the swirls and added the butterfly button. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the doily border.

As part of the challenge this week. We have been asked to send our cards to one of the children on Post Pals. I have chosen to send mine to Bethany B Bethany is in the process of transferring to Adult services. I work with adults with severe learning and physical disabilities and so was naturally drawn to Bethany's story.
I hope you will be able to join in with the challenge this week and brighten a child's day.
Have a great weekend
Sandra xx
