A spoonfull of sugar dt card drive

Hi blog hoppers,as i'm sure a lot of you know by now that one of our dt memebers Michelle had a terrible accident a couple of weeks ago and has lost her right eye.  The dt and a few of our sponsors have gotten together to do a card drive for Michelle as it would sure lift anyones spirits to recieve a mailbox full of well wishes.

So this weeks challenge is to make a card for Michelle, enter your card on ASFOS challenge blog and then pop it in the mail to :
Michelle Oatman
17232 Wildhorse Pass
Marion, TX 78124
There are loads of things up for grabs as the sponsors have all pulled together and we are hoping you will too.
For my card this week i thought i would use the cute little donkey that was kindly donated by whimsy stamps store for FREE.

My dp is American crafts, image colored with copics, pearls from my stash as is the ribbon and i added some stitching around the layered dp.
