A Two-fer card!

I made this card for my mom. I gave it to her for Mother's Day and for Nurses' Week!
(Hence..Two-fer) My mom is 50+ and just last year she became a registered nurse (although she's always been my first-to-call-on-call doctor)! She worked long and hard and I'm quite proud of her! Yeah mom! That was one of the MAIN reasons that I purchased this stamp set..for the nurse hat! : )

The Two-fer Card.
Nurse LynetteI wanted to keep the card simple because my mom really isn't too frilly....okay, and I was in a bit of a hurry! I put Crystal Effects on her hat and I used Lumiere Pearl White all over the card base and DP, and on her dress! I had really only wanted to put the Lumiere on the DP, but I didn't plan too well cuz I decided to do that AFTER I had already stuck it to the card base.....so...I ended up getting it all over the place; I then had to make it look intentional and I spread it all over, which ended up working well because it sealed in the rub-on! We will just say that it was ALL in the MAIN PLAN of the card and I meant to do it! And don't look too close because I tried to put another rub-on on the top left corner of the main image piece, but it just wouldn't stick! I don't know what the problem was....the whole book of rub-ons does NOT work! I purchased it at my LSS. I think I'll just chuck it! It is a bit frustrating! Anyway....My mom didn't care how messed up the card was ....she actually liked it quite a bit!

P.S. I've got blog candy to share....soon!
