Nurse Nicole

I was so tickled when my friend, Carolyn King, designed this Nurse Feelgood stamp set for Gina K Designs, as I knew I'd be able to put it to good use. Several years ago, I hired a senior high school student to assist with general clerical activities in the office. She was a wonderful asset to our office, but, of course, had dreams of going to college. She recently graduated from nursing school, and I am so proud of her!

I paper pieced the uniform, heart, book, and her arms and colored the rest of her with Copic markers. I used the sketch design from Our Creative Corner and the color challenge from Stamp TV (there's a link on my sidebar) to use blue and red (also issued by Carolyn). You can see I stamped the medical symbol, which is from the same stamp set, on the righthand side of the inside of the card.

Stamps: Nurse Feelgood (Gina K Designs)
Cardstock: Real Red, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, Real Red, Night of Navy
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Copic markers, 1/4" circle punch
