To Have And To Hold

OK here is the news of the day,week, or month whichever: My DH will NEVER be able to repay the debt he is accumulating. Last week I volunteered to go into ICU and work in his place so he and a co-worker could leave work and go fishing. See trout season opened 3/1/08 from being closed the entire month of Feb every year and he goes stir crazy after 3/1 until he gets to wet a hook. lol so for the sake of his mental wellbeing I was a good wife. When I volunteered I thought I would just be there if they needed me, turns out I was working with a fairly new employee and was sorta overseeing her and only 1 other experienced nurse working ooops. Well of course the phone rang and a new patient coming. The rest of the shift was AWEFUL. While I was finishing up my card Tuesday the phone rang and I was relieved when I heard his voice knowing it was not the hospital calling to see if I could work. Well guess what, they put him up to calling for them! eeekk. So I went again, and I worked ICU again. Thank GOD it was a much better day. I vowed not to answer the phone this morning if it rang :) OK on to today's challenge:
This is for today's SKETCH and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGES. These colors are so elegant I had to make a Wedding Card with them. I used the new Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls embossed folder on the basic gray layer then applied stickles randomly then matted on black. The white layer was stamped with Gina K's Circle Stamp using versamark then heat embossed with Stampedous Marcasite EP cut out and matted on black Mega Scallop punch. The image is stamped in black stazon then colored w/blender pen from the ink pads. I applied Crystal Effects to the flowers and Ranger Stardust stickles to teh viel and gown. This really sparkles IRL. Hope you can see the shine and hope whoever gets this really likes it.
