Good Luck

Hello everyone,

Given all the challenges I used in yesterday's card, I decided today to only use one sketch challenge for this card. A great colleague is moving on to a new job and he just can't leave without getting a card. I used Monday's 2 Sketches 4 You to get me started.

The patterned and teal layers are Basic Grey Oliver. The teal layer is textured with the Cuttlebug Pop Culture border folder. The silver layers are from Canford. The black layers are of unknown origin from the scrap bin. The sentiment is Waltzingmouse Say It With Style. The focal point outline is also Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 4 and is cut with a Spellbinders Nestability die.

I really like this card though it is 'darker' than I intended. I was hoping for masculine not morbid. Still, it will work for this colleague. He is a great guy and I will miss him so maybe I'm feeling rather blue at the loss. I have to say this is the first time that I've used the Canford silver paper and I actually like the result.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
