Week 160 - Recipe

For our recipe this week we have chosen 
We'd like to see something made from metal on your creation.
Anything will do, charms, soda can scraps, diecuts, eyelets, paperclips, brads, whatever you can come up with!
Chrissie is off to Australia for a month on a wonderful holiday and so Anne has offered to Guest once more...Mandi may show her face also. In Chrissie's absence she really hopes that you will try to visit fellow participants to leave a friendly word as she probably won't manage too many!

Here I used a sheet of emboss-able metal to make the feature  panel for this card. I over printed the sheet with a  script stamp prior to embossing. It was lightly sanded afterwards! 
The image really pops doesn't it!

This card was requested by a friend for her father to give to her mother for their DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY! What an achievement... 60 years of marriage!
There is no stamping here as the sentiment was computer generated  and the focus all die cut.
I used a new Sizzix die Set  655405 of Dogwood flowers. I have a real soft spot for these as they are the state flower of Virginia where we lived for a while many years ago! The bird and the background mount are from SU! As the flowers stick up rather, I decided to make a box for this card too!
The metal is the heart charm!


Just one card from me this week as I slowly get back into card making... Although work has been so busy so not done much since the weekend.  I've used a stamp from Clearly besotted and white embossed it onto lavender vellum. The clearly besotted star dies cute out emboss able metal sheet and then i ran them through a polka dot embossing folder too!
I've another busy week at work so I will try and visit as many of you as I can ... 


Anne has been busy visiting and commenting on LIM submissions (thank you Anne) and will continue to do so in Chrissie absence (Chrissie has made cards for the challenges even though she probably won't have commenting  opportunities whilst on holiday!)
Please visit Anne's blog for details of her card.
