Tuesday Throwdown- Use Metal

The challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week is to Use Metal.  Our Sponsor for this week is Sassy Studios.


 Oh my, I got out some really old stash- remember when we used to put all of out sentiments in these metal frames?  I also added a spiral clip for the ribbon, another blast from the past! 
 The image is colored with Copics. I added Sakura Gelly Roll Pen Stardust over the top layer. I added a Sweet Stamps bookboard star (Globecraft Piccolo) embossed with Silver enamel EP, then added random dots of silver EP around the star after dotting the paper with a Versamark pen. 
 The DP is retired SU.  The frame die is Memory Box and is from Sweet Stamps- called Stitched Layers. 

Stop by the TT Blog to see the fabulous inspiration by my Tuesday Throwdown Teammates. 

Challenges:
City Crafter- Love Metal
Allsorts- Any occasion other than a Birthday
Sparkle and Sprinkle- AG using EP, Flocking, etc

Thanks for stopping by!
 Shelly
