Happy Birthday to my favorite nurse!!!

Hello everyone!  Lorraine and I became acquainted during the time I was going through the 40 treatments of radiation for "parotid cancer".  She owns a home nursing company and my doctor contacted her when I was so sick from the treatments, to come to my home twice a week, which she did and ultimately, Lorraine and I became dear friends...I just love her!!!  She and her company were there for me after the open heart surgery for my aortic aneurysm and last year after they did eight stents and I don't know what I would have done without her!  This is the birthday card that I made for her!  No casing this time.......this is totally my design!  I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the graphics.  You can find the free banner graphics here!  I want to note here that I added the "Happy Birthday" on the banner using my Studio software and the Silhouette Pen Tool with my PaperMate EraserMate pen, added embossing powder and heat set it.

Lorraine loved her card!  Thanks for stopping by!
