Di's card sketch April #1

So I finally get around to uploading my card for Di's April #1 sketch:

I used: DCWV cardstock, Making Memories paper, KI Memories paper, My Mind's Eye Magnolia rub-on flowers, ribbon from Bath & Body works, Kaiser rhinestones, Heidi Grace sentiment stamp, black Versafine ink, black Marvy pen.

Forgot to say that we took Jess to her consultant's appointment at the hospital last week. The Dr did agree that her skin looked very yellow/orange and as he didn't think anything was wrong with her liver thought that it may be something called carotene anaemia. This is almost always caused by eating too many carrots but there has only been 2 known cases where it just appeared. As Jess doesn't eat many carrots at all she could just be the 3rd case! Anyway they took some blood from her which has to be tested for carotene and bilirubon levels (just to make sure her liver is definitely OK) and we just have to wait for the results now. This may take a while though as the Dr wasn't sure if our hospital could actually carry out the test or if her blood would have to be sent away. Anyway if it is this anaemia it's not serious and nothing to worry about.

First, I am keeping Jess in my prayers!

Second, this card is spectacular. The colors, the thoughtful little touches like your border doodling, and the bling all cam together beautifully!

Third, are you still in SBS11? It's dwindling quickly, and I'm trying to fix my sidebar. I wish we could have made it work! I haven't quit yet, but I may be the last one!
