Hangover for Shemaine

Hip Hop Hangover

Hi guys. I was going to post my YSHLUA card, but I decided to make something for the request Shemaine sent out a few days ago. She has a friend whose cousin is in need of a liver transplant at the ripe old age of 29. I just can't imagine how frightened he must be. Shemaine requested that we make our challenge cards to include a positive message or quote. Well, I didn't do any of the challenges yesterday, but I looked at what was out there this morning and found CAS18, which was to use Kraft, pinks or corals, and one other coordinating colour. Since this card was for a guy, I made the pink more of an accent and chose Kiwi Kiss as my coordinating colour. I really like this particular sentiment, too.
The pink accent on the flowers is Copic atyou spica marker. I'm going to go back and adjust that bow so that it lies flat even when standing. It flopped just as I took the photo, darn it! I hope the card isn't too overtly feminine.

This card will be winging its way to Benjamin Welch tomorrow.

Not too feminine...he'll appreciate it all the same, I'm sure.

I would be so afraid to be told at that age I needed a new Liver. Yikes.
