The East Wind- Angel:Fort McMurray Sympathy card

There is a huge forest fire burning in Northern Alberta right now. It has caused at least 90000 people to be evacuated from thier homes. Even though not everyones home was lost it will still be weeks or months before these people are allowed to return home. And it will be months after that before thier homes and town are rebuilt and cleaned of all the ash and soot and water damage is repaired and the list just goes on and on. 
I wanted to do something to help these people. So I have organized a card drive in the Kit and Clowder Facebook group. People from all over the world are sending cards for me to forward to the Red Cross here in Alberta to the pass on to these displaced families. Just a smile, an encouraging word, something to let them know the world is thinking of them and they are not alone.
This is the first card I have created for the Fort McMurray evacuees:

Materials used:
The East Wind- Angel colored with copics
Shimmer paper
Wink of Stella ( I wish you could see how shiny those wings are!!)
CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge
Elmers feathers

I am entering this card in these challenges:
I used lace- the border on the die, TEW image and a die cut
