This week was a sad goodbye to a great bloke and wonderful supporter. This is the card I put together for his grieving family.

Card ingredients include:

Papers:  Blue foil pack, cardstock
Other: Embossing powders (gold, copper & blue), twine, White Opal Liquid Pearls .

I'm playing along with:

CAS Colour & Sketches #112 (I've tried to use these colours in their metallic form, however they aren't as vibrant as I was hoping for  :(
Creative Craft Cottage #34: Include a Sentiment
Open-Minded Crafting Fun #30: Up in the Air
Sparkles Forum #65: One for the Boys
Eureka Stamps #128: Birds of a Feather
C.R.A.F.T Challenge #299: CAS
