Altered Nurse Feelgood - Thank you

Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you all had a great week.  I have stayed busy with my kids, their school activities, and of course, our upcoming move! It is hard to believe that we will only in be in NC for another 2 months.  But, in true military fashion, you embrace the journey and look forward to new adventures! Now... if only we can find a home! LOL!

Today I would like to share with you an "altered" card I made for our unit's Chief Nurse who is leaving us to head to a premiere military hospital to become their Chief.  Because our DR's and Nurse's spend most of their time in Military uniforms, I altered Carolyn King's Nurse Feelgood set from Gina K to have the nurse in her ACU's.  I cut off her skirt and drew in some pants and boots.  Sorry for the off center photo! I forgot to take a picture and before we gave it to her, I took a photo with my phone!

I paper pieced the uniform with some dp by the Paper Studio and added some Flower Soft in sand for the boots to give it a suede like texture.  I then popped her up on a background using my Spellbinders Nesties. I also used MFT's die-namic open scallop for the top of the middle panel.  I stamped the caduceus and added the 'N' from Nurse over it to signify the Nurse Corps she belongs to.  I punched it out using my 1" circle punch.  I colored the face and hair with my Copics and finished the card with some MFT Twill ribbon which I stamped Nurse across and added a K&Co brad.  The inside of the card says Thank you.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at my altered project! : ) I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
