My Time to Craft - Metallica

The challenge this week at My Time to Craft is Melallica, so we would like to see some sort or metal, or metallic colour on your cards! I was really original and went for gold!!
I used my Sugar Nellie teddies stamp and coloured them with twinkling H2Os in metallic colours, then I embossed the purple card and dragged a gold ink pad over the embossed script. I finally added some gold card candy, ribbon, peel off message and inked around the edge of the scallop.

Here is a close up of the teddies so you can see how they shine with the twinkling H2Os when they hit the light!
Thanks for looking as always, hope you've all had a great day in the sun!

Love Becky xx
