Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Some Metal

Hello, everybody!  It's Sunday and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog. This week our theme is Use Some Metal. You all know how I love kitties so I was delighted to receive this adorable image from Ike's Art called Kitty 2, which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.  Our challenge is to use some metal, so I hope you can see the little paw-print heart charm that I added under the twine.  

Here are the other items used:
  • Patterned paper:  Cosmo Cricket
  • Sentiment stamp:  Penny Black
  • Die:  Memory Box Twirled Heart Border
  • Accents:  Gems, twine (dollar store), charm (stash)

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