Metal -ATC

When I read that this weeks Just for Fun Challenge had the theme of 'Precious Metal'.  I went on the search for some pieces of metal, that I know are hiding from me somewhere in the craft room. The pieces I found were real scraps, so as I haven't been making many ATC's recently, I had just about enough for the job.
The  edges were all shaped with an Alterations 'on -the- edge' die. The pieces were then embossed, I used sandpaper to distress the red metal. There is a gap, which I painted with Viva Precious metal bronze, and stamped with my favourite rose.  My last piece of red was just big enough for  a die cut flower, with a small photo image in the centre.
Thankyou for taking the time to take a look, I real appreciate you calling.
