Warrior Princess


 I can't even imagine hearing those words.  So when my aunt asked me to make her a special card for someone she knew who had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer I obliged.  She wanted a warrior princess and I thought She-Ra, a generous freebie from Mayzy Art, was perfect.  I colored her with Copics and fussy cut her.  Papers are Me & My Big Ideas.  The current sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp served as my starting point, and I embellished with a border punch, flowers, flat back pearls, and a Tim Holtz adage ticket.






It makes me sad to make pretty cards for such an ugly disease, but I know the recipient will appreciate my aunt's thoughtfulness and support! 

Be sure to check out Mayzy's amazing blog and shop!  You can find She-Ra and other freebies HERE and her new shop HERE!

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R81, R85, Y28, B00, N0, N2, Y32, Y35, E31).

Challenges:
- Creative Card Crew: #28-Girly 
- Dream Valley Challenges: #49-Girls, Girls, Girls
- Stampin' for the Weekend: Something Girlie

Omg! A mini she-ra, princess of power. Yay!!! Lol. I loved waking up early Saturday morning to watch that cartoon along with he-man, the smurfs, the snorkels, etc. I'm sooooo aging myself here. Hahaha.
