Rustic Rose Happiness

Howdy!  As you know, I work at a local hospital.  This is Nurse's Week.  The nurses who work in our Radiology department, are wonderful.  All of the nurses there, are incredible.  They always greet you with a smile, and they are always willing to help where they can.  Super group of ladies, and gent.
I am making them lunch tomorrow.  A simple gesture to show my graditude.  And I have to make a card as well! {smile}
I wanted to make a quick card, so I stopped by CAS(E) this Sketch.  This wonderfully talented design team will certainly inspire you, and encourage you to play along.  

and here is what I crafted:

Recipe:  I used crumb cake card stock as the card base.  I used the same sheet of pattern paper for both of the matt and the main panel:  Rustic Harmony by KaiserCraft.  I added some machine stitching around the border.  I wrapped a piece of taupe lace trim, and pink rose vintage seam binding.  I added a multi-loop bow with hot glue.  [My bow, replaces the blossom in the sketch, and my lace & seam binding replace the sentiment piece, in the sketch.]
For the sentiment, I added a sentiment block pre-made by Anna Griffin.  I added this rectangle to a scrap piece of the rustic harmony pattern paper.  I adhered these two pieces together with foam tape.  
I wanted a little bling (and what girl doesn't?), so I added a trio of rhinestones.  I adhered the rhinestones in locations on the card, similar to splatters on the sketch.
Now, all I have to do, is add my hand-written note!  This is as 'clean and simple' as I can do.  For those who are use to my style, know that I would love to add another layer of lace/trim, a paper blossom (or two) a button, and most likely some twine.  But, I am pretty happy with how this CAS card turned out.  {smile}  I hope the nurses love it too!
