The challenge is still open for another 2 days to make Get Well cards for little Angelo. If you missed it, the Whimsical Wednesday Design Team had created cards for Angelo, who is the 15 month old grandson of fellow blogger Margie, from Bella Bug Creations. Angelo recently underwent brain surgery and is going through chemotherapy. We are trying to bring some cheer to him and his family. The day I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to be a part of this! As, a mother, I couldn't even imagine going through what they as a family are going through right now. I give thanks that my children have been blessed with good health. My hope is that my card can bring at least a small amount of joy to him and his family. Here is what I created.
I wanted to make something bright and cheerful for little Angelo! Something that will catch his eye and something that is always smiling at him!
There are several layers stacked full of fun sea animals! I almost added some more elements but then I remembered Angelo is only 15 months old and I didn't want anything on there that he could choke on.
The inspiration for this fun card came from my good friend Dr. Sonia at Cards, Crafts and Kids Projects! My girls have been wanting to make a tunnel card just like Sonia and her dear little assistant's card! They were too busy to help with it today so I decided that I would try to make a different card inspired by her tunnel card. Her card is much more elaborate and the card the girls & I are making together follow her wonderful step-by-step tutorial! Thank you for the beautiful idea Sonia! I'm glad I could use this idea for this very special project!
