Nice Rack!

My cousin's husband was in a bad snowmobile accident last week. He busted 5 ribs and 2 vertebrae. Thank God he is expected to make a full recovery, but it sounds like it is going to be a long, painful road. I made this card for him. He lives in northern Michigan and likes to hunt, so I'm sure he will like this card.

Like yesterdays card, I used the Wildlife Reserve set with the Weathered background stamp. I stamped the buck with Basic Brown on Very Vanilla card stock. I used my watercolor pencils to quickly color the elk and the grass. Then I added a bit of color to the background with my pastels. When I was done coloring, I added more texture to the image by lightly inking the Linen background stamp with Creamy Caramel and stamping right over the elk.

The image was then mounted on metallic copper card stock. I embossed the "get well" sentiment with copper embossing powder on the Chocolate Chip card stock. I added a bit of Chocolate grosgrain ribbon and some copper brads and I was done. I hope this brightens Scott's day a bit. Maybe I should write in the words, "Hey, nice rack!" under the elk to give him a laugh - but then again, with broken ribs I don't think laughing is the best medicine.

Have a great day - and be safe!
