A touch of metal


The theme of our new challenge this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow is
'Metal Mania'.  We are asking you to include some metal in your vintage/shabby chic entry.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.




This card was made using a selection of  Graphics 45 papers for layering as well as the focal image, together with a few trimmings from my stash.
Both corners are metal photo clips and the base of the flower is also metal.
Once again the favourite  Vintage Photo distress ink was used for all the shading.

I will also be entering these challenges-
Anything  Goes challenge -Challenge 86 Vintage/Shabby chic.
Happy Campers - Challenge 10 Shabby Chic
