Retiring Publican

My DH's cousin is retiring after many years as a landlord of village pub and we all enjoyed a lovely family lunch at his pub today.  This is the card I made for him.

I used All Occasion ' Beer Glass & Bottle' dies with white card, which I coloured with alcohol markers.  The lid of the bottle is silver mirror card.  I cut the bottle label with Core'dinations cardstock, so I could sand it to reveal the embossing.  The foam on the top of the beer is cream hammered card.  I covered the bottle and beer glass with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to give them a bit of sparkle.  I used MB 'Stitched Squares' for matting and layering the images and sentiment.  Three Card Candi in shades of brown and cream finished off my card.  Lots of snippets used for this card, so I'll be off to play in the Playground.    

I am joining in the following challenges:

    I love your very fab design of this.
    My Dad was a landlord of a pub in my youth, and he will miss the life so much, but will have more time for himself now.
