Feeling Better in Red

I made this card for my good friend and stamping buddy, Anne Harmon, who is having surgery on her thumb this week.  She'll be out of stamping commission for a few months while it heals.  She had the other thumb done maybe 6 months or so ago - so she already knows how painful it is in the beginning. (yuck!)

Anne LOVES red -  so I just had to use as much red as possible on my FEEL BETTER card I'll be sending to her.

I used several circle Nestabilities to make this card - the back of the card is cut with a scallop circle die (I cut across the bottom area so it will stand up and not lean forward since the front circle is smaller than the back!)  I used two circle dies for the red and a heart circle die in Brushed Silver for the front.  To attach the front to the back - I scored a line across the top of the front and adhered it to the back piece using Scor Tape.

My cute little nurse cat is Nurse Sprinkle from the Cat's Pajamas (this may be retired - I couldn't find it on the site).  My sentiment is from Say It Loud from Waltzingmouse.  Inside (not shown) I stamped "I hope each day finds you feeling more and more like your wonderful self" - from Healing Touch Sentiments from PTI.  I used two red Tiny Twinkles for Nurse Sprinkles eyes!

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

CASology Cue card - Circle
Less is More - paper piercing
Cas-ual Fridays - Hi Ho Silver (my heart circle is cut from brushed silver cardstock)

I hope you'll come by again on Thursday - I'll be participating in a Waltzingmouse DT Blog Waltz featuring our favorite stamp sets!  I think you'll be inspired!

Quite a lot of layers this week Julia, but a super simple design. The piercing looks fab.
Thanks so much
