Sketch for Ethan

Today's sketch is a very special one. Lauren & Mackenzie suggested that all of the sketch team make a card to send to Ethan. Ethan is Alicia's son and his cancer has relapsed. She is a absolutely wonderful person, and another member of our Saturday sketch team. Mackenzie and Lauren thought it would be nice to make something to let Ethan and Alicia know we are all thinking of them, and I totally agree.

Here is the sketch from Lauren.

And here is my card.

I don't have very many "boy" stamps, but I think this astronaut from the now retired All Mixed Up fits the bill. This is actually the first time I have used this set.

The stars are punched from the small star punch from Stampin' Up!, and then embossed with three layers of glassy glaze.

The helmet has crystal effects on it to make it look more like glass.

I hope Ethan likes this card I have put in the mail to him. If you want to send a card, please let me know and I will give you his address.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the sketch team.

Great card! I don't think I have ever saw glassy glaze before. It looks like embellishments that you would buy somewhere! Thanks for sharing!
