Craft Creations Challenge 32 - Embossing and a special request

My DT card this week for Crafty Creations is for a nurse for her 40th Birthday. I have Used Basic Grey papers, Some embossing on silver foil to create the sentiment, some clear faux stich heat embossing on edges of card for added detail. I have used alpha brads for name, papermania ribbons and some red cross brads from stash.
This week we also have a special request!
(the next part is copied from Crafty Creations Blog)

Ann made this card for a young 13 yr old girl who had part of her arm amputated after a boating accident. You can find her story HERE on her neighbor Erin's blog. This girl's neighbor has taken it upon herself to seek out fellow cardmakers like us, to make a card for Paige, and she is offering up blog candy just for helping cheer up this sweet girl! If you could send a card to Paige it would mean so much!! Also, here is what we will do; if you wish to make this week's challenge card for Paige and you let us know, then we will put your name in the draw for this week's blog candy twice! Thanks everyone!!

This is the fantastic prize being offered by Deena this week - well worth a go I'd say and it would be lovely if anyone can also create a card for Paige. Thankyou x
