Sweet Pea Stampers - April 2013 - Support your favourite charity

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  The challenge this month is "support your favourite charity".
I make all my cards to make and sell to raise funds for charity so I support many international/national/local charities and for many different topics ie health/children/elderly/animals.  For my card I have used an animal as I often support the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).  I have never grown up with animals but I cannot bare the thought of anyone mistreating animals.

For my card I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps Ching Chou-Kuik's rubber stamp called "Fly Dandelions" (this is also available now as a digital image).  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Star Dust Stickles and Pan Pastels.  I have then used a Craft Concept Dandelion Whisper embossing folder and highlighted areas again with my Stickles.
The backing papers I have used are from the Bearly Mine Designs Damask Collection.  I have finished the card off with a glittery feather, Spellbinders butterfly (inked with Tim Holtz's Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord distress ink along with my Inkylicious brush), lace, Craftwork Cards sentiment and some small flowers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - Anything goes with sparkle
Allsorts - Spring has sprung
One Stop Craft - Birthdays
Pan Pastel - Use a stamped image
Dream Valley - Happy birthday
Bunny Zoe's - Favourite colour combo - I like anything to do with purple/lilac but I also like it teamed up with black
Stamp with Fun - Birthday

Cupcake Craft - Raining cats or dogs
Papertake Weekly - BINGO board - I have gone for the left hand side column of glitter, die-cuts and blooms

First I would love to say how awesome that is that you sell your cards for charity! It is an amazing thing you are doing. I sell some of my crafts as well for charity in my children's memory. It feels good to make money selling things I love to benefit those in need.

Your card is gorgeous! I love the embossed look of the background paper and it is just put together beautifully.
Thank you for playing along with our Animal Antics challenge at the Sisterhood.
