Feel better soon

I just wanted to show a card I made yesterday. While it seems some cards take forever, this one took no time at all. Could it be that I was loosely following a sketch. I am an avid sewer and have been at it for 45 years. I always use a pattern but when it comes to using a sketch for card making, I just can seem to get the hang of it! I usually wind up going off in a totally different direction! That wasn't the case with this card.

The image is from The Greeting Farm and is called "Cheeky Nurse." I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and OMS with some highlights added with Copic glitter pens. The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". The papers are from my stash. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a Gelly Roll pen to add some faux stitching. The grograin ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and goes nicely with my faux stitching. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart while the bling and sentiment are from my stash. As always I popped the image up with foam dots for some added dimension. Thanks for looking!
