Nurse Ellie

I was asked a while ago by a friend to make a few Christmas cards for her to sell at their Christmas fete to raise money for the baby unit she works in. Thanks to another friend (or two), I have quite a few to send up to her (well I will have when I finish mine!)
Since she's a nurse, I thought I would use this image from Tiddly Inks to make her a card to send up with the Christmas cards. I then decided to decorate the box too. I hope she likes it when she gets it in the post full of cards for her to sell!  I coloured my digital image using my promarkers, used papermaina papers for backing and printed the sentiment out on the computer.

I had a quick look around the challenge blogs and decided to enter my card in a few

Promarker Challenge  - Teddy bears picnic (using a bear on your card)
