Bloggers Challenge-Sketch Challenge AND Help for Katie!

 This week our Bloggers Challenge is a Sketch Challenge.
I decided to make tonight's card for the Help for Katie cause, and chose one of many digi's that are e-mailed to all who are able to make a donation for Katie's cause.  

This is a Magnolia Digi from the Just Inklined set, and the sentiment is from CDS digi set.   I got a little grungy, and used very simple colors of Copic markers for the flower and the leaves.  I used Technique Junkies techniques called Out of the Box and Torn Frame.

The info for Help for Katie can be found on JAK's Blog, along with photo's of all of the digi's and prized that have been donated.  I have watched Katie for AGES posting tutorials and fabulous projects over at CDS and feel like I know her (although I rarely comment- shame on me)..........  I pray for Katie, her family and all of the medical personnel taking care of her that she can find joy in each day and healing too!

For the other Bloggers Challenge Players- there is a linky  our List Mom- Lisa's blog set up- it appears below and your card will show up on all of the other bloggers challenge players that have a link posted!  How cool is that-  nice idea Lisa!

Challenges for my card:
Do You Stack Up-Distress it
Paper Crafting Journey- Use a Digi
Tip Top Tuesday-Anything Goes
365 Cards-Day 310 In stitches (straight and Zig-Zag)





Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly
