Captain Wentworth's Letter

I'm a HUGE fan of Jane Austen, and one of my favorite Austen moments occurs in Persuasion. I really thought that Anne had lost her chance with Captain Wentworth . . .
I stamped my stamp on vellum with brown Brillance ink, and then I colored the image gently with chalks. I also used that "edging with an inkpad" technique. Does anyone know what that's called?

My favorite thing about this card is that it's really an envelope. (I stole that idea from Nitrocat.) An abridged version of Captain Wentworth's letter is in the envelope.
