Glitter n Sparkle DT - Add Some Metal

Hello, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - solitary_star - so happy to have you join me!  

It's Sunday and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week we would like you to Add Some Metal.  My card features an adorable kitty image called Fall Kat from Ike's Art, which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.  Do you see my metal?  I used a copper brad, metal-rimmed gem brad, and a leaf charm.

Here are the other items used:

  • Designer paper:  Brenda Walton by K and Company
  • Dies:  Cheery Lynn Ivy Strip, Spellbinders Ironwork Accents, Nellie's Multiframe Ovals
  • Sentiment:  Eureka Stamps
  • Ink:  Ancient Page Sienna (for inking around sentiment)
  • Accents:  Flowers, butterfly, buttons, brads, gems, charm (my stash)
  • Ribbon:  Offray

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Add Some Metal challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!
