Ruby`s 7th Birthday card

Hello There!
It was Ruby`s 7th birthday yesterday so ofcourse I made her a card. She is such a little star, apart from being our very own Super Hero, I just had to go with those in mind. Luckily for me the latest challenge at In the Pink is titled Starry, Starry Pink and we are to use stars on our creations.
Here is my entry,

Lots of pink card and pink glitter paper stars on this one.
The DP is Pink Petticoat.
The image is a digi by Hand made Harbour.
The sentiment is computer generated and I`ve made a Gold Ribbon which is the Childhood Cancer awareness ribbon with a small ruby added.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid

Ruby was back in clinic on wednesday for tests and chemo. Her blood levels have stayed up which means her bonemarrow has recovered from the nasty infection she had over Christmas. The Dr decided that she was strong enough to have the strong chemo upped to 35% from 20% and she also had another round of Steroids.
When we went to see her yesterday for her birthday she was very drowsy and not showing much interest in anything but after 30 minutes or so the excitment got the better of her and she pulled herself round enough to open her presents.
The chemo and steroids combined really knock her for six and she was a bit weepy, which is so not Ruby but it`ll only be a few days before she`s back to her old self.

Thanks for popping in ...Lynne xxx

  4. Happy Belated 7th Birthday to dear Ruby!! She really is a super hero and your card could not be more perfect, Lynne! Steroids really do a number on emotions and moods, unfortunately, but they are a necessary evil at times. I keep Ruby always in my prayers! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Oh I absolutely love this pink superhero card. Just perfect for a little girl and for our starry starry night challenge. Thanks for joining in the In The Pink Challenge this time. Hope to see you again.
