A Card Made by....Stephanie!

I am sharing a card that was made by Stephanie. And no, Stephanie is not a stamper (as she sees herself only as an occasional card-maker)....she is my daughter.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jorge!
 With my encouragement, Stephanie is entering this card for the Repetition Challenge over Moxie Fab World. Good luck, Stephanie!

Stephanie volunteered herself to make this card for a church friend. The card is made from one sheet of white card stock. You see, it has to be big enough for the entire group of  friends to sign, so it makes sense to have a larger size. Stephanie told me that it took her nearly an hour to make this card. I know she must have enjoyed the process! What I like about this card is her way of utilizing the kraft card stock to simulate the shadows of the skyscrapers. Her ingenious way of using the scraps for the sentiment (from SRM Stickers) and balloons. Her creative way of using Washi tape is also lovely! Now I learn something from my own daughter! Since Stephanie is running the "Stand up to Stigma" campaign in her university, I thought it would be most appropriate to share a photo of the campaign buttons.
 
Bravo, Stephanie!

Stephanie's card is delightful. She must have got some talent passed on from her Mum.

Fabulous, Stephanie- both the card and campaign! Being a sufferer of depression and having some people dear to me that suffer from mental illness, I am all for informing people about it....what exactly is the Stigma platform all about?
