Card for Noah

Diana Harrison Biorkman has an adorable 5yr old son Noah who is in the last stages of a 2 1/2yr battle with Neuroblastoma Cancer. The family is celebrating Christmas early because they do not think Noah will make it til Christmas. Noahs request is to get lots and LOTS of Christmas cards! If you would like to send a card please send to his dad (this is an alternate address that the family has recently submitted):
Noah Biorkman
C/O Scott Biorkman
3480 Petoskey Way
Milford, MI 48380
They have also asked that instead of sending a gift for Noah that you include a dollar (only if you want of course) donation to be given to the University of Michigan Neuroblamstoma Research or the Michigan Make a Wish Chapter.

Here is the card I made for Noah...I saw on a video that he got an angel ornament and he said it was his favorite because he knew soon he would be in heaven and that he would turn into an angel....how precious this young boy must be! I hope with our help he will know how many people are thinking of him!




This was my first easel card and it was so easy to make. There is a tutorial over at Sassy Studio that tells you how to make one! The digi is from Digital Delights and I colored him with my Copics and Prismas. Also colored the white button with my Copics to make it match and pop a little. I added silverish glitter to the wings (although you can't see it in the picture) and popped the image out with 3-D squares. In case your wondering what that paper is doing on the inside right of the card...I had to cover up some writing that I had already put in the card before taking the picture...oops!

Challenges:

I think this is such a beautiful card. This story touched my heart as we are from Michigan. Milford is not far from where we lived. I am hoping I can make and get a card to Noah before I leave. Thanks for sharing!
