and they say........METAL!!

Yes.......Simon Says.......METAL!!

I will be delivering this card to a sweet friend who lost her father unexpectedly. I know the depth of this loss and wanted to create something special...

I went to my trusty Tattered Floral Die as I had not used it with metal. Surprise, Surprise...I wanted to try something different, kinda mix things up....I decided to use Alcohol Inks on the fabric and Dimensional Pearls on the metal and I loved the end result.

I also created some inchies from Ten Seconds Studio Metal, which I placed in the background. If you look closely...you can see them. I ran them through various Texture Fades. Some were colored with Alcohol Ink others...NOT!

The edges of the paper were run through the Distrezz-It-All for the finishing look!!





I originally created this as a 4x6 card but found that because it was a bit bulky...it wouldn't fit in the envelope...so I mounted it on a 5x7 distressed piece of paper.....Hope she likes it!!

So, make sure you pop on over to the


and check out the rest of the the Teamies FABULOUS, BEYOND AMAZING creations....
they never cease to amaze me!!

Look forward to seeing your AMAZING creations!!

PS....DAD...I miss you and ALWAYS will!!!
