One card - two challenges.

Well, I'm on a roll now. I thought this year that as I have cards to make I should be more thoughtful and look for challenges to enter instead of just crafting away merrily in my own world! So as I have a very dear friend who is going to hospital for quite a big operation in the next couple of weeks I thought I'd make her a card which I can enter into a challenge. I've used a digi image from Bugaboo stamps which is most apt as being a nurse herself she probably won't make the best of patients and don't say but I think it looks a bit like her!! I coloured her with Promarkers and highlighted parts with Glossy Accents. I found my tumbled glass distress ink pad today- yay - I knew I had a blue one somewhere and have combined it with some brown bazzill card and spotty papers to make this card.

For this A5 card I have used:

Digi image and sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps (I reprinted the sentiment to fit)

Promarkers ( I really do love them!)

Paper Pizazz Vintage 8x8 papers

Brown Bazzill cardstock

Martha Stewart Deep Lattice punch

Hobbycraft and QVC flower punches

Nellie Snellen - Branch punch

Papermania and Hobbycraft dots and gems

Diamond Stickles, spotty ribbon and Glossy Accents.

I'd like to enter this into 2 challenges:
