Craft Your Days Away DT Card Challenge 43 - Metal

Good morning (it is now good afternoon as my scheduled post did not work!) and I hope everyone had a great Easter.  I had a lovely long weekend away on the Isle of Wight which was a welcome getaway as my nan sadly passed away a few days before.

Today we have a new challenge for you over at Craft Your Days Away which is to use metal on your project.  This is not something that I usually use on my cards so after rummaging through my stash I found some metal flowers that I hadn't used before so thought they would be perfect for my card.  We got to play with some great images from our sponsor Sassy Studio Designs and I used one called Sassy Cassie.  Here is my card:-

Items used:-

Sassy Studio Design image coloured with Promarkers
Papermania papers
MS doily lace punch and oval nesties
Metal flowers from an old QVC kit

My teamies have made some amazing creations so please pop over to the CYDA blog and we would love to see your creations with metal too.  We are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.Buy Sassy Studio Designs
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

OSAAT - Use a Digi
Crafts and Me - 3D embellishments (metal flowers)
Sweet Stamping - Girly but not pink

Hugs Sarahxx
