Nurses Call the Shots

First off I would like to say that I am a nurse by profession. I have been blessed and priviledged to be a part of many peoples lives in their greatest times of need. I truly love my profession and some of the very intelligent, caring and dedicated individuals that I have had the honor of working with. I have been touched by so many individuals that have taught me the true importance of life. Through those I care for, I have seen what courage, strenght and perseverance can accomplish. That being said I also have to say that being a nurse has taught me that laughter can also be the best medicine. It is with that sense of humor that I would like to share this cute card that I made.
Todays project is a 5x7 card that was made using one of the digis from the Kenny K workforce collection, Naughty Nurse. The image was colored with my prismas. I added some liquid pearls in platinum to her buttons, glossy accents on her lips, and sprinkled glitter on her cuffs and garters. I colored her syringe with orange, I thought every nurse would recognize the universal color for insulin injections. Her little clipboard was printed from my printer and cut. I also created the sentiment "nurses call the shots" on a word document and punched it out with stampin ups extra large tag punch. The label the nurse is on was cut using my silhoutte cameo. I did an offset to get the layer effect.I also embossed the first layer with my cuttlebug and a script embossing folder from recollections. The syringes in the background were also cut on my Cameo. Embellishments were found in my stash. The papers used are from Stampin up: Love Letter Stack, Cherry Cobbler, and Basic Black. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday: Week #193
Stampin for the Weekend: Challenge 2 Embossing
Rainbow lady's challenge #190: wearing red
Die Cutting Divas: #50, anything goes
Craft us Crazy: Challenge #20, Anything goes
