A Day For Daisies ~ Metal


Hi Again Guys!
 And you thought you were rid of me! lol
To be honest, I thought so too, but then I remembered just in the nick of time to post this: my first of two projects as Guest Designer for A Day For Daisies.
This fortnight the challenge is :
Heavy Metal Rocks
But before you crank it up and start head banging,  remember you need to use a ADFD image. :-)
And when your project is complete, just click here and enter.
Also, remember you can hop over to CDAC and enter your project there in the ADFD  Monthly Card Game  for an extra chance to win something.


For my card today I have used a mixture of digital papers and K&Co.
All the bling is Recollections. (If I recollect correctly..)
The glitter is Martha Stewart.
What coloring you see is done with Prismacolors and paper piecing.



And a close up of the metal bits.
The die cut flower is actually cut out of a 12x12 sheet of paper. It had lots of flower designs in it, all entwined like eyelet lace. Shame to cut it up really.........NOT!
(you know I love destroying virgin paperpacks and untouched glitter pots etc. It was pure joy!! The only shame is that you couldn't hear me squealing with delight! lol)
OK. Enough said. :-)



So I hope you can join in the fun .
Have a great weekend!
