Good morning ladies. Hope you are having a good week. Today Tuesday, it's the start of another fab challenge at Crafty Sentiments. This week the challenge is to use METAL on your project.

For my card I am using this gorgeous rubber stamp of Primrose, which I coloured with my promarkers.

The gorgeous Christmas papers were a freebie in a magazine, poinsietta die is Spellbinders and the sentiment is also from Crafty Sentiments.  This is the metal part on my card.. a lovely Christmas bells embellishment which I've had for a very long time. Thought it looked great with this colour combo.

I followed this sketch to do my card from Sketch and Stash... and then realised challenge closed yesterday!!! Woops.. but I loved it, so happy I tried it out.

I am entering my card in these challenges today.
I Love Promarkers 92 - CHRISTMAS TREES (on my DP)
Delightful Sketches - BINGO (DP, Die Cuts, Flowers)
Southern Girls 32 - EMBELLISHMENT BINGO (die cuts, gems, ribbon)
Pile It On 47 - ANYTHING WITH A 'P' (the poinsettia)
Lollipop Crafts 58 - ANYTHING GOES

I got me some really exciting news now - I did the Top 3 at Lollipop Crafts
Top 3 Badge 

with this card

So fun :) Thank you for looking today.
