A Card For Maddy - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
Some of you will have already seen a snippet of my post as airhead here remembered late last night that I needed to schedule my post as I was working 8am-6pm today and I started typing and uploading pics but the land of nod was calling and instead of hitting save I must have hit publish not realising so you had an unintentional sneak peek lol.
It been a very long day and I rushed off out the door this morning & left my shoulder support at home so I've been clock watching willing 6pm to come so I could come home, take my strong painkillers, have a bath & eat chocolate, Kit Kats are my favourite at the moment mmmmmm lol. I guess before the tablets take effect & while I'm waiting for the husband to get out of the bath I'd better get down to business.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is
TAKE A PICTURE 
which means anything photograph,camera, & / or film related.

This darn card took me forever to make which caused my plans to go to pot yesterday, it took literally hours of huffing, puffing, fiddling & sighing & I'm still not happy with it lol. A big thank you to our lovely Steph as she kindly sent me these gorgeous Magnolia papers to play with as part of my birthday pressie xxx
I find that sometimes the harder I try at making a card nice when it's for a special reason / person the more I am dissatisfied with the result so I need to stop trying and faffing and just get on with it lol.

This card is for a young lady called Maddy who some of you will probably remember from when Simon Says Stamp organised a card appeal as young Maddy was battling leukemia, and there was an amazing response from card makers all over the world. After doing well and seeming to be well on the road to recovery Maddy relapsed in January so the card appeal has been launched again so please join me &
More details and the address to send cards to can be found on the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog, to find the post easily I have popped Maddy's photo and a direct link to the post at the top of my right hand sidebar as well as linked back in this post.
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, E00, R12, hair - C9, C7, C5, dress- RV55, RV52, RV10 / N3, N1, N0, tree - RV66, RV00 / E18, E17, E15, E43 background - B0000, BG000, BG10, / YG25, YG21, G21 / YG61, YG13, YG11 / YG23, YG63, YG61
