Wishes for Bella Blog Hop Week 2

Welcome to the Wishes for Bella Blog Hop Week 2. You should have arrived from Marcea's blog. If you have just joined us, jump on over the beginning on Denise's Blog.

If you have not yet heard the story of Bella, visit Bella's Website. Bella is an incredibly brave 8-year-old girl who was stricken with a severe case of Streptococcus pneumoniae sepsis which led to a four-limb amputation. Many people around the country are rallying to help Bella and her family by sending cards and donations to show support for this sweet girl. You can send cards and donations to...
The Bella Tucker Fund
P.O. Box 199
Londonderry NH
03053 USA
So, here is the first card I made for Bella, which will be going out in the mail this week...
Stamps: Princess Tilda, Lady Tilda
Paper: Floral Dreams (K&Co), DCWV textured cardstock
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink, Eggplant
Accessories: Various butterfly and leaf punches, Sizzix Floral and Vines 2 Bigz Die, flat-back pearls, MS branch punch, flowers from Wild Orchid
I made a screen card. Princess Tilda is dreaming of growing up to be an elegant lady, and her dream is behind the screen.
I made the screen using Flower and Vines 2 Bigz Die (just the vines) attached to a circle frame. I then added leaves and butterflies to the screen.
I added some flowers and flat-back pearls to add some elegance.
Here is the inside of the card...
...and a closeup of Lady Tilda.

One more thing...Erin is offering the opportunity to win some wonderful blog candy. For every card you send to Bella, you will be entered in the drawing for the fabulous prize. To learn more, visit Erin's Blog. The winner will be posted July 20. 
From here, you will hop on over to Maria's Blog.
I hope you enjoy the blog hop and that you will join us in sending some love and prayers to Bella.
