Heavy Metal

It's Friday! So it is time for this week's dare....

Huge apologies for going MIA this week, I have struggled to find time to be on the PC due to;
a). Burning Crusades being released
b). see above ^^

grrrr.

This week's it is Saffa's turn for a dare....

HEAVY METAL
..no I don't mean rock music! I would like you to make a card on any theme you like with the rule that it must include something metallic...that's all! You could use wire, charms, foil or even metallic pens.


So after toying with a few ideas, most of which involved sneaking an Iron Maiden reference onto the card and were not too sensible, I made this;



Paper is K-Ology Hannah, Flowers from Dunelm Mills, Ribbon is from Little Silver Hat and metal bits are a clip, mini brads, a screw brad all from Carolyn's and a tap washer (!) from our tool box.... Inking and a printed sentiment.

Oh and cos I could not fit any Iron Maiden reference on the card that would have been in any way befitting of the card, I will add this instead here :) and so I give you a rock genius (IMO).... enjoy lol!



There are more amazing cards made by the Design Team here I look forward to seeing what all of you create....

love that card and I had to have a wee giggle about the Iron Maiden reference as my hubby would have loved it. Hence me having to make my cards while he is out, as he would have wanted some kind of metal reference in there too.

Love the card Jo. The colour of the flowers is fantastic.

Totally can relate to getting nothing done because of The Burning Crusade - my blood elf is soooo pretty (isn't life crap when your game char is prettier than you!)
