Cards for a Cause


Fellow Verve Diva, Jen Tapler, is hosting a challenge on her blog with over $250 worth of blog candy up for grabs. You can read all the details HERE. Jen’s father has Alzheimer’s Disease and by participating in her challenge, you will be helping benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. All you have to do is create a card, post a photo of it with a link back to Jen’s challenge, and then mail Jen the card. In May, to kick off her Annual Stamp Out Alzheimer’s Event, Jen will be hosting a charity auction where she will be auctioning off decorated Card Organizer tins full of our handcrafted cards. The money from those auctions will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association. I participate in challenges all the time, it is so nice to know that with this one, I will be contributing to such an important and worthwhile cause. I hope you will join me in making a card and sending it along to Jen. :) I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for this card.SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Floral Symphony (Verve Stamps); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), So Saffron (SU), New Leaf (PTI); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), Basic Black, Delicate Dots DS (SU); Accessories- border punch (EK Success), ribbon (Darice), Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU); Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
