My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge # 14...Go Team CHS!

I have a quick post this morning to share a card I made for the MFTWSC14 sketch Challenge. I thought I would ink up this sweet A La Mode All Star girlie and I thought I would make this card to cheer on the CHS Durham Quest team that will be involved in our fundraising and awareness event called CHS Quest on May 29th. I work for The Canadian Hearing Society as an American Sign Language/English interpreter. We are having a really cool event that is a smart phone based scavenger hunt. All the info for CHS Quest can be found here

For my card I coloured up this sweet All Star A La Mode Girl with my Copics and added some shading with my Prismacolor Pencils. I cut the image out with my circle Nesties and inked with Scattered Straw Distress ink. I added the letters CHS with small alphabet stamp set that I have had forever. I used my new Lily Bee This and That 6x6 paper pad that I picked up on the weekend at ScrapFest. I stamped the sentiment on kraft cardstock cut with the die that comes in the Die-namics Framed Greetings Stamp and Die set. I also added some cork butterflies with my Butterfly Die-namics and MS butterfly punch! The butterfly is a significant symbol at CHS as most butterflies are deaf! "CHS has adopted the butterfly to symbolize the work that we do. The miracle of transformation that every butterfly goes through parallels the experience of many culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people, who with the help of our programs and services, emerge ready to spread their wings."  
Here is the inside...pretty simple...I love stamping the shadow images on the inside and I used another one of the sentiments that comes in the All Star stamp set.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by today and having a wee peek at my MFTWSC # 14 sketch card! 

Have a stampin' great day!

I love the natiural colours you have here & that patterned paper is amazing with the cork & the checked black & white ribbon. Your 'shadow" image stamped on the inside always delights me too.
Thanks for sharing about the butterfly & it's significance.
