Nurse's Day- I think i've found a heartbeat card tutorial

I thought i might share a step by step process of making a card base.  I am using a current sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy found here.

The event taking place this week:
National Nurses Day, also known as National RN Recognition Day, is always celebrated on May 6th and opens National Nurses Week.  National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birth date of Florence Nightingale. 

This is the finished card:
These are the supplies needed:
4 x 6 card base
Pink mat 3 7/8 x 5 7/8
Yellow background 3 3/4 x 5 3/4
Pink mat 4 7/8 x 1 3/8
Blue pattern strip 4 3/4 x 1 1/4
Pink pattern strip 4 1/2 x 1/2
Aqua mat 2 x 1 3/4
Pink pattern paper 1 7/8 x 1 5/8
White paper for border 2 x 5 3/4*
* Cut down after punched to 3/8 x 5 3/4
See picture below

Now the step by step by viewing the pictures:
Mat your yellow background paper on the pink mat, the blue strip pattern paper on the pink strip mat and the pink pattern paper on the aqua mat as shown:
Now place all the pieces on the matted yellow background as shown, i add the completed background piece once i've add all of the pieces, then i attach all of it to the card base. (some times i want to add ribbon so that is why i wait to attach it to the card base)
