OSAAT #197 - White + one

Come and join us at One Stitch at a Time for our challenge this week with the theme White plus One which obviously means white and one other colour (though you can discount skin and hair).

I chose the image Nurse from Pookie at Stitchybear Digi Outlet. This meant that I was able to make a Get Well card which I haven't done for quite a while.

My large square card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I used red card from Papermill as the mats for the background, sentiment and the main image as well as the corner die cut. The white background was embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and cut it with my Xcut trimmer. I generated the sentiment on the computer before matting it on to the red card. The corner is a Memory Box die, Madera Corner.  My only extra little embellishment was a red apple button, from Create and Craft, tied with Creative Expressions baker's twine.

The sponsor this week is Creative Craft World with a prize of 3 Promarkers but pop across to the OSAAT blog to read about the prizes.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

  5. I'm just thinking how this card would be the best of medicine for anyone in hospital Hazel .....many a man would instantly fall for the gorgeous young nurse :-) I think it's the crisp clean look that you have achieved that makes me think of hospital. The embossed background and touches of red are so pretty ....and the apple, a very thoughtful gift..
