World Pneumonia Day ATC

Kristin from Places, Things and Me told me about the challenge being run by The Scrappy Tree to raise awareness of Pneumonia.  It is World Pneumonia Day tomorrow, November 12th.

Shocking Fact: 3,000 children die every day from Pneumonia.

The Scrappy Tree challenge is to make something just using the colour blue, with black and white accents allowed.
You are reading it correctly - 3000 a day

I made this ATC.  It didn't actually have to be about pneumonia but I thought that awareness is what tomorrow is all about.  The background is watercolour crayons.

There's a load of information about World Pneumonia Day over at The Scrappy Tree and details on how to donate money towards their cause.

I like the contrast of the blue background with the black and white images. Very nice and for a good cause too!

Pneumonia killed my step-grandmother and her sister within just months of each other and it took the life of a good friend last year, yet it isn't something that people think of as a killer.

Hope you are well today and are avoiding the bad weather we are having here!

WOW Jo! You are so impressive! The way you have captured the essence of the challenge in such a creative and beautiful way has me smiling. My favorite has to be the textured background that resembles jean fabric but the journaling and images you used that support the challenge and the cause are just perfection!! The colors are also lovely! Well done :)

Thank you so much for taking part in our challenge at the Scrappy Tree and supporting a great cause.
