Nurse Nora


Can you believe I used a white card base?!? I cant even remember the last time I used this much white on a card!LOL!! I just usually cant seem to pull it off to satisfy me. I colored this adorable Nurse Nora and just couldnt help giving her some black hair. As a little girl I used to love my Grannys jet black hair!LOL!! Hopefully I'll be able to pull off the look as good as she did when I need to cover these stubborn grays she and my Mom have so generously passed down to me!LOL! Now that I finally have a scanner I will try to scan a pic of Granny in her uniform that was my inspiration.
The dp I paired with Nora is from two different mat stacks from DCWV. I know the red is from the citrus stack but Im not sure which stack the argyle print is from. Its hard to see in the pic but the red dp has little white lines that reminded me of a candy striper so thats how it ended up on the card!LOL! Oh and I do love how my bow turned out on this card!! Have a great day!
