Time for CASology Cue Card #80!



It will be interesting to see where this week's cue will go. For me I have used three shades of purple for my colour blocked sympathy card. My image was heat embossed with clear embossing powder and the sentiment stamped in black. I am also submitted my card to CAS-ual Fridays color block challenge.
