Card for Maddy

I just read about a project called Cards for Maddy and I knew I had to make a card for this young girl.  Please read her story.  She has Acute Myeloid Leukemia and, sadly, my good friend's 21-year-old daughter just passed away from AML in April.  I hope my card finds Maddy well.

To make this card I used a pre-coloured freebie digi stamp from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps - I love this adorable cat princess!  She has lots of other great freebies too!  The paper is from Trimgym's Digi Stamps, Papers and Images and I really like the colours in this one.  Other supplies used were:  sentiment stamp (Sunshine Designs), cardstock (Recollections, Walmart), flower punches (EK Success), ribbon and gems (Dollarama).  I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations #47 Fur or Feathers (I went with fur)
