Mini Slimline Birthday

 I recently got some new mini slimline dies from Kat Scrappiness and with some leftover pieces of digital background paper from Artsystamper I made a frame with that die and added it to the background paper. The card base was a 3 x 6 piece of white card stock to which I added the framed pattern paper. Then I added a butterfly and a sentiment that I got from the Gina K. Designs line to complete my little mini slimline.



This little card creation I am adding to the following challenge. It is the Turner Syndrome challenge-It's A Girl Thing and if you click on the link you can read much more information about this syndrome.

A few years ago I had never heard of it and was so surprised to read that Linda Hunt, the actress who plays Hetty on NCIS LA has this syndrome. I just love her and think she is so talented. In fact this syndrome affects one out of every 2000 girls worldwide. It is hoped that this hop will bring awareness to this syndrome and in fact it is hoped that more and more doctors will learn to recognize this condition sooner and know how to treat it. It is something that has not been heard of much before so I hope this will help to get the word out.


Thanks for visiting and I hope you will join in on the hop and also make some cards as well. Perhaps you could be a lucky winner as there are lots of wonderful prizes being given.

God bless, Verna
