Spread the Love Blog Hop & Magnolia Down Under

Hello~ Spread the Love Blog Hop is a hop to help spred the love for 11 year old Jaimie Cates, who has been the victim of horrible crime. This hop has been organized to send Jaimie support during this hard time. Click Here for details. My card for Jaimie is a "friendship" card featuring tilda and her puppy. Animals can be such wonderful comfort always!!
Magnolia Down Under Challenge #25 is Distressing.

I used mustard cardstock and the dp is BG Porcelain pack. The dp paper is already color distressed and I added more by using the distressing CB folder as well as tearing the top and bottom border. Popped up the tree stump as well as little Miss Tilda. Stamped saying and then made flower.
Close up of tilda with puppy. I read that Jaimie likes pink and black so I colored with that in mind :DThe flower was created using dp, prima flower and a fancy brad as topper. The base layers of the flower are made using Spellbinders Snowflake and Daisy Head collections.

Stamps: Magnolia tilda with puppy and tree stump, Two Hearts printworks "friendship"

Inks: Memento tuxedo black and Copics
Paper: BG porcelain pack
: Spellbinders Daisy Heads Poseabilities and Papercut Snowflakes Shapeabilities collections, CB distressing folder and Heart Punch
Embellishments: fancy brads and prima flower
mom's signature

Oh my gosh, what a terible tragedy.
Your card is beautiful and I'm sure will carry a lot of love with it to a little girl going through so much. I will get a card off to her also. You're right about the puppy. Thanks for sharing your card and Jamie's story with us at MDUC this week.

I think you are the final kick in the pants I needed to get something crafted for this young lady. Poor thing. You are right, animals have healing powers. Your card is wonderful, I love how you've used the paper and your flower is gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing at MDUC, I hope we'll see you next time around!
