Nursing Scrub Card

 *5/14/14: Edited to add...I found the photo of the card I CASED by Betsy Veldman from Paper Crafts magazine-->

Our daughter graduated this past Saturday from a local community college - majoring in nursing (summa cum laude) - and I'm a proud mom to say the least!  Ever since I saw Betsy Veldman's card in Paper Crafts magazine (sorry...time isn't there for me to look back to see which issue) where she created a scrub top card, I knew I wanted to CASE it for my daughter.  I used blue instead of green since those were the school's colors.  Betsy used a cut file for her stethoscope, but I opted for a sticker and simply cut it in half.  I knew there was a reason I was still hoarding some retired Blush Blossom CS as this was perfect for the "flesh" part of the card!  I also changed up the little RN badge and added a tiny library clip.  I'm almost out of these (previously sold by SU) and can't find another source of this tiny size.  If anyone knows where I could get more of these tiny clips, please let me know!

I'll share a few photos of her in our back yard before she left for the ceremony.  I haven't received the pics from the actual ceremony yet!

As you can see below, my stamping supplies came in handy for her to decorate her cap! The heart was made with 2 dies from SU. The monogram letters were cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  Bling was arranged in a normal sinus rhythm - included since she works on a progressive care unit with lots of cardiac patients and has also completed telemetry training and works sometimes as a "tely tech".
