Father's Day Tribute

It feels like eons ago since I joined an online card challenge. When I was not making cards, I think of the all the card designs I could have made. Oh, what can I say? I am finally back on track and today I am following the challenges again to retrieve my cardmaking mojo.

Made several of these for Father's Day. I had to gauge time for the cards to be delivered to fathers in advance since home is 13 hours flight away :)

Paper: 5"x7" Dark blue Opalescent card (Royal Langnickel), frosted damask pattern paper, black cardstock, beige cardstock, black glitter sticker
Embellishment: Leaf jewel, copper mesh ribbon, dark blue satin ribbon

I do hope the fathers esp. my Pa would appreciate this card design. Was aiming to make a classy looking card design. Often I find it tricky to give him something deem worthy as a gift. One can never out-give the man who gave you everything you had in life to make you who you are today. Don't you think so too?

This new card on the block is off to jam at these challenges:
