Creative Belli-Sketch plus Metal

The Creative Belli Blog has challenged us to use Metal on our cards plus there is an OPTIONAL round sketch:
The Belli challenge is all about using your old/neglected embellishments on your cards.  You can see the DT sample cards by clicking on the Belli Link- the challenge is for two weeks- we’d love to have you join in!
I found some metal embellishments I purchased 5+ years ago when I was making a paper bag book….and, I used DSP from last years ‘stack’ from Joann’s……
I colored the D2D image and the metal tag with Copic Markers. This is the first time (in my memory) making a circle card.
I also made a CAS card with the D2D image:
I colored the image with Copics and did faux stitching on the sentiment (first time for that as well).  I paper pierced in the main image panel.  The DSP is from the same ‘stack’ from Joann.
Other challenges:
Double Delight-D2D digi and CAS
Stars and Stamps-Fall card and no sentiment
Hand Full of Stamps-November inspired
I did it-anything goes
Just Add Ink-wheels/circular
Sew Many Cards-Stitching-faux
2 Sisters-stitching-faux
All sorts-Paper Piercing
Pollycraft-In Stitches

Thanks for stopping by today!
If you are interested in playing in some challenges, there are a couple of great links :
Feline Playful has a handful of challenges posted stating what the challenges are (love this!)
The Daily Dare- look here daily for the sites that offer challenges to participate in.
I’ll be back Thursday with a FCD Blog Hop!
