Fitztown: Challenge #33 - Lots of Layers

Haha... I'm totally losing it! I was not scheduled to make a lots of layers card for the new challenge at Fitztown but I thought I was and then I thought to myself, well, now I have to share it! lol
Hope you'll pop on over to the challenge blog and see what's going on. In the meantime, here is my card:
I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
I am a follower of these blogs. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here.
This is the sketch:
This is the recipe I used for my card:

You know, I'm not really big on celebrities and keeping up with any of them. I surely do not know any of the new faces appearing in movies these days. However, Robin Roberts of Good Morning America (GMA). She is an amazing woman! I know there are lots of other people battling cancer but she's visible to me and an inspiration. I'm not much for watching TV. The last time I saw her she was on The Today Show but I saw a blurb about her on GMA. I am in awe of her. She has cancer and is making something with her life! Here I am with my little old leukemia and some days, I feel so bad I just want to curl up and die. Here's this woman... battling breast cancer in a very public way... and LIVING her life. Really... I'm in awe! I've had to give up working. Some days... it is all I can do to get out of bed to get something to eat. I have some days when I have the biggest pity party I can muster up and then I think of Ms. Roberts and I am put to shame. Anyway, when I first saw this image... she was the first person I thought of. I don't know why. I don't think it looks anything like her. But she came to mind and then when I saw this sentiment... I knew what I had to do with it. I'm thinking I will have to be one of those people who sends celebrities letters expecting a response. Well, I'm smart enough to know that if I receive a response, it will be a form letter that millions of other people receive. I just feel the need to share with her how inspiring she has been to me at times. Silly me! This is something I'd always told myself I'd not ever do. Here I am. Mark your calendar! Today is the day I'm gonna do this! lol
I hope you'll swing by the challenge blog and take a peek at what's going on over there. 
Thanks for stopping by my place for a bit.

  3. Ema, I was going to start with an LOL at your enthusiasm for creating unscheduled cards but as I read on I was uncertain as to how appropriate that would be. My third thought is that indeed you were meant to share this card with its very inspiring sentiment. I'm sure that you created this very beautiful and special card directly from your heart. The colouring of the image is amazing .....she looks like a young Cilla Black back in the 1960's here in the UK and I just love the bold but elegant colour scheme ......strong colours for a strong lady with an inspirational message Ema.

    On a different note .... Please remember that we, your friends, want to be with you when you have a pity party.....You are a very inspirational and talented lady. Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥


I love reading comments! Who doesn't? It brightens my days so please leave one and I'll come visit you too! :) Ema
