Show Me Your Metal

Hi di hi Bloggers,
I hope you're all well this fine Sunday morning!
At least I hope it's a fine Sunday morning!
With any luck, when this goes live I'll be having a bit of a lie in!
I've had such a busy time of late & things are just starting 
to calm down & get back to normal!
Well, it depends what you call normal I guess! lol
Anyhoo, with out further ado, on to the purpose of this post!
It's Sunday & as you all probably know, time for the new challenge over at 
The Crafty Pad
Your hostess this week is the lovely Helen & her chosen theme is
 Show Us Some Metal
Here's my take on that!


I used things from my scrap box to make this card as my crafty stash is
still all packed up in boxes all around the house!
The reason for that is that we're re-decorating & having some 
other work done around the house too!
I made a square card! (I hear you all yawning!!! Lol)
I used red for the base, then a matt of a plain grey/blue linen paper.
The DP's are from downloads ages ago & have been in my 
scrap box for a year at least!
The image of course is from The Crafty Pad Designs.
I think he's just the cutest little bear & I love using him on my cards!


I was tempted not to colour him but decided to give him a touch of colour 
with my usual mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers.
I added a dusting of Diamond Sparkles & inked the edges with chalk ink.


Onto the metal!
I used brads from my stash I think they are from Do Crafts 
but I've had them forever so I can't be sure! 
The little sentiment tag was from a Making Memories
goody bag  a couple of years ago, as were the snowflake charms


I added a piece of red ribbon and fixed the snowflakes with brads.


You can just about see the inside of the card is decorated too!
Thanks for popping in, I hope you had fun!

  40. This is a beautiful card, and I love your use of metal in it (that's not an easy element to incorporate). I think that adding some color to the snowman was really a good decision and the entire card just works, it really is nice looking!

    Thank you so much for participating with us at Opus Gluei!
