Heavy Metal

Hi Folks,

I thought I would share this card I made last week for future SIL's birthday.
I bought some metal foil tape last year, and used it with this Couture Creations EF, but that was as far as I got!   I decided this was a good start, especially when I was short of time,so I followed the Tim Holtz Riveted Patchwork technique from Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 for the card base, the sentiment panel is from a Spellbinders EF, and a TH sentiment stamped and heat embossed with black EP. Another piece used up out of the 'need to finish' box.

I am entering this at:
  Sugar Creek Hollow - Metal Mania
  Hiding in My Craft Room - Embossing
  My Time to Craft - Men Only
  Raise the Bar - Anything Goes
  Cards Galore - One for the Men
  The Crafting Cafe - Anything Goes

Well that's it for now, hope you're all having a good Sunday.

Avril xx
