OLW67 and Stamping Bee Challenge 131

Stamping Bee challenge this week is to create a one layer card, but it musn't be white. The One Layer Wednesday challenge is Thoughtsgiving, to send a card to someone struggling with a battle, and to donate to a cancer charity. 
I started with a piece of A4 craft cardstock, and stamped a Stampendous maple leaf in Versamark, and then added some cosmic shimmers in reds and oranges. I then stamped a Penny Black sentiment from the Salutations set and added some cosmic shimmers to that also. I punched some small leaves from a variety of types of cards, some textured, some patterned.

 I was completely inspired for this card by Susan over at Simplicity, you can see the card here. I also made a similar one with a white card base, and a different sentiment from Bananafrog. 

Here is a selection of the things I used.
I know who will be receiving this card, as they are definitely on my mind and in my prayers alot at the moment. The cancer charity I am supporting is The Christie, who looked after my mum, and who I ran a charity half marathon for two weeks ago.
