Shopping Our Stash #140 - Heavy Metal

Hello and welcome peeps! It's time for the next challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, we want you to dig through your hoarded metal items, bought or made, whether it be brads, charms, pins, an embossing folder with a diamond plate design, etc. You get what we mean! For my card, I used a square shiny silver brad and a charm:

Here is the inside:

The brad and charm I've had for quite a while. I actually found the charm whilst rummaging through a drawer for something else. Score! With a little help using the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch #139 I put my card together.(I did take some liberties with the design as I switched the banner elements to the other side of the card. Hope that's ok!) The sentiment was heat embossed before the panel was adhered. The digi image was colored with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut and adhered with foam squares over the circle element. I even added Glossy Accents to her glasses and the glass she's holding for some extra shine!

I hope you get the chance to play along this week at Shopping Our Stash! Please be sure to check out what my teammates created for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for stopping by and stay crafty my friends!
