Award of Excellence!

My niece is the nurse educator in the emergency department of a local hospital. She was recently recognized by the College of Registered Nurses with the Award of Excellence in Education. What a wonderful moment when all the hard work you put in is noticed! Of course, this was the perfect opportunity to get out this cute little nurse by Mo Manning to make her a card congratulating her on her achievement.  I found the star paper in my scrap bucket & it matched perfectly with the copic colours I used on her scrubs (BG10, BG11 & BG13) The CS is Bazzill; the star is a wooden button from JoAnn's that I coloured with BG13 & threaded with silver sparkly embroidery floss. Remember those magnetic sets of letters & sentiments that Making Memories put out eons ago? Well, that is where the "achieve" came from. It was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink from Stampin Up.  Thanks for taking a look.
