Divas by Design - Challenge 14: use metal

Hello again blogworld

Sorry still a bit erratic with the posting - we are getting back into school routine and hopefully I'll be posting regularly again by next week.  Of course by then I'll have to start thinking what I'm going to be doing for Christmas cards this year.  Mostly quick and easy panic cards probably!

Anyway, enough waffle this post is my Design Team card for the new challenge over at Divas by Design. This time we would like to see some metal on your projects.  The entries for the last challenge were very spooky and I'm sure this time I'll be looking at lots of metal!

The prize for this challenge is a Diva prize box,  that sounds fab and I'm sorry I can't enter myself!

So we would love you to pop over to the challenge and have a go.  There is a wonderful range of inspiration from my teamies and there is also my little offering as well.  And here, without any further waffle here is my card:

Hope you like it!

Details of card:
Image is an older Sugar Nellie stamp: a Rachelle Anne Miller image - Lola with Bunny and I coloured her with my Promarkers.
The swirl is a Cheery Lynn die-cut: Fanciful Flourish.
Flowers are from one of my numerous boxes.
Brad and metal surround are from The Hobby House
Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and die-cut with a Die-namics die (unfortunately I can't see the name of the die, but I got it from Tracy at Dies to Die for).

And that's it, no papers and no glitter - all very clean and simple!

So look forward to visiting all your blogs and seeing all your wonderful creations!
