Sweet Dreamers Challenge #7 (Send a Hug)

Made this one for the Sweet Dreamers weekly challenge for my SCS blog group, the Sweet Dreamers. Last Monday's challenge was to make a card and send it to someone who could use a hug. Our challenge hostess, Mary, posted a link to a young lady who had recently lost an arm in a boating accident and is still in the hospital. You can read the story here, and send a card if you like. While I personally know many people who could use a hug, this story really touched me, so I'm mailing this card off to Paige.

I used Wednesday's sketch challenge, SC245.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you all have a wonderful week.

Stamps: Stampingbella Cherry Blossom Bittybloom, PTI sentiment

Paper: PTI ssw, Ripe Avocado, Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, patterned paper by PTI
