Biking Black and Blues (and Green!)

My dad just had a bad bicycle wreck (hit and run--with a dog!) on Monday evening and landed in the ER with a badly broken clavicle (aka collar bone). He's imobile in a sling right now until his appointment at the fracture clinic to determine whether or not he's going to need surgery (It's likely!)--so I felt like I needed to send him a card. So with a bit of humor behind it, I chose an image from my new Everyday Button Bits set by Papertrek Ink for my card.
Yeah, the bike! But I thought it was just perfect--especially when paired with this sentiment (from the same set)! I embossed the card front using my Tartan 5 x 7" embossing folder and mounted the image onto my new favorite green cardstock New Leaf by PTI. Added some of my new PTI buttons and *viola*! A card to brighten up my dad's day!
