Nursing is an art…

I’m sharing a CAS card featuring Nurse Rio from Simply B Stamps.

My card follows the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I wasn’t sure what to do for embellies or a background to make the card a bit more interesting until I saw they are looking for CAS with silver over at AAA Cards.  Decided then to add some die cuts in silver and to mat with silver to add a bit of bling.  Went with a white and red colour scheme for the rest to keep with traditional medical colours.

This card is actually heading out to Rio herself (the inspiration for the image) who is studying nursing and needs a bit of encouragement.  With my decidedly “n” themed image I am also linking it up at Just Add Ink for their “Just Add N” challenge.

  1. Super card and love that it's destined for someone who needs a bit of a boost. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  2. where I can buy this cute stamp set and die? in USA?

    1. Hi Millie, you can buy the stamp from Simply B Stamps (it is a digi so no postage costs no matter where you live!), (if it retires you can contact Betty and she will fix you up anyway). The dies are from LaLa Land, from their club kit, they will go on sale in February, check here then LaLa Land is in the US so shipping shouldn't be too bad and they do sales fairly regularly if you subscribe to their newsletter you can find out when. Hope that helps!

  3. Your Nurse Rio is such a fabulous idea for our N challenge and you've coloured her so beautifully. She will, I'm sure, be a wonderful encouragement to your friend. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink :-)

  4. Awesome colouring and themed card, Emily. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at Just Add Ink. :)

  5. Cute use of the sketch with the nurse on one panel and the nursing images on the other! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
