Wish you well....

Hello fellow bloggers and Magnolia lovers. I have a new card for you today following the same sketch I used on my Thank you card last week. I'm am loving this newest collection from Magnolia called "Winner Takes All". I didn't think I would like it so well, but I'm finding it quite versatile. You can purchase any of the images in full size or mini at Diana's Magnolia-licious online shop.

First, before I reveal my card I have and little share. Recently I was approached through my Etsy shop to fulfill a custom order. I worked hard to get that order ready in a timely fashion and even made another project when the first wasn't to the customers satisfaction. I really work to please. After posting those items to my ETSY shop and contacting the customer a few times there has been no follow through. Lesson learned! Never do a custom order with out taking a deposit. Each of those items are now for sale on my ETSY shop, so if anyone is interested.....

This time I chose to use #307 Nurse Tilda. Isn't she just the cutest? She is colored on Cryogen white with Copic markers with distress inks weathered wood and tattered rose with an aqua pen for the background. Card stock is Bravo Burgundy and Bordering Blue by SU. My dp is from my stash. If you look closely you will see that I used a fancy stitch around my panels that looks like the heart beat on a monitor. I know it's a little hard to see...

Well here is my card...

A closer view of Nurse Tilda...

Side view of the card...

On the inside I thought it would be fun to add a little first aid kit. I used my MS punch to make a pocket into which I inserted some bandaids, antiseptic wipes, disposable thermometer, gauze pads, pain reliever and a tea bag. Although this picture shows the items individually inserted, I had to put them in a small plastic bag to keep them from falling out when I stood the card up. I forgot to take a picture of that.

My salutation panel is again, very simple...

And finally, the artsy view of my card...

  9. Barb,

    You come up with such clever and original ideas and so perfectly put together in fantastic ways. I love this little nurse Tilda (colored perfectly) and the colors of CS you put with her. The band aids, tea bag, etc included are a stroke of genius! I am dealing with lots of band aids on my nose after the basal cell surgery last week. Thanks for sharing and sorry about the ETSY order. Some people are just bad!
