I love challenges because they push my imagination and force me out of the box to create. Challenge #156 at My Craft Spot did just that. I would never have thought to use something metal on a project. When I saw the challenge last week I passed over it thinking metal = brads and I don't use brads much any more. But over the weekend I found these foil tags in my stash and thought they would look awesome embossed on a card. Then I remembered the challenge to use metal and this card was conceived. I am slipping this card right under the deadline, also.
I used this wonderful card sketch from Sketchy Saturday on the Paper Issues blog:
I am also entering this card in Virginia's View Metallic Challenge. I have been admiring her challenges and the gorgeous entries from so many extremely talented designers for several months now. I must admit to being slightly intimidated to enter any of my creations but I am throwing off that feeling and I am going to throw my hat in her ring.
I am really starting to get in the groove lately and feel my mojo flowing so stay tuned for more projects and I haven't forgotten about that giveaway....I will get that posted soon too.
Make someone smile today.
