Get Well Box Card

This week at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our "twist" is Anything Goes! I love that theme, don't you?! It's so fun to see what everyone's been up to during their craft time!
Although I'm posting this card on New Year's Eve (best wishes for a wonderful 2016, by the way!), I made this card earlier in the month to give to the 5-year-old daughter of a dear friend. She had some surgery recently, and I want to visit her and give her this card to help cheer her up.
Our sponsor for the month of December has been the lovely Sherri Baldy whose "Besties" are so popular. You can visit her etsy store at She created a darling nurse with a lollipop that I thought was just perfect for a little girl's card. I used a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store for the box card and substituted a stethoscope I had in my library of digi stamps and cut files for the owl that came with the box card file. I just thought it seemed more appropriate for a Get Well card.
Then I printed the nurse 3 times so she is on all the flaps. I forgot to print her upside down the first time, so when I went to adhere her, she was facing the wrong way! I'll have to remember that for next time!
I added the "Happy Healing" sentiment onto the cut file for the sides of the box and printed that on pink cardstock, also. The bandaid and "Get Well" sign were part of the original cut file for the box card, so I just chose my colors and cut them out.

Here's a side view:
