Bones Update and a Wedding Card

The hand is healing slowly, the swelling is pretty much gone and the bruising has changed from shades of Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves to lightly blended tones of Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed.  Still don't have much grip so it will be a while longer before I can do much in the way of stamping.  Meantime however I have found some old pictures of a Wedding Card I made using one of my favorite stamps.  The beautiful Rose Script stamp is available from Chocolate Baroque.

The image was stamped and heat embossed in gold onto pearlescent card then painted with Twinkling H2Os.  I used peel-offs for the gold borders and the greeting and made a box for the card to be delivered in.


  1. Lovely card. Sorry to hear about your hand, hope it gets better soon.

  2. What a fabulous fold and card design.

    Hugs Diane

  3. Glad to hear you are mending well. Your card is beautiful inside and out! I know somewhere it is saved in pristine care! TFS, Phree

  4. A beautiful card Phree - so glad you have shared it with us. I had to grin at your description of your bruising. Of course - I know just what you mean but imagine trying to expain that to NHS direct!!

  5. It does look very special with those pink panels against the gold. Take care with that hand & don't try to grip too many things before you should be doing so.

  6. A stunning card, Phree! So elegant. I was so sorry to read about your falls, but your description of your bruising brought a smile to my face - glad I am not the only one who describes all colours in terms of either Adirondack or Distress ink colours!!!
