Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - Heavy Metal with Brads or Eyelets

Good evening :)

This is my entry for the latest challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  This challenge is for Heavy Metal with Brads or Eyelets.

My daughter slept for two and a half hours this afternoon!  So it gave me time to create this card.
 I'm really happy with this card the lovely shiny cardstock just pops!  The side where I have the brads is actually excess card that I was going to trim off ... but hadn't got to yet ... and at the end of the card I realised I needed somewhere to put brads .... bingo!  perfect spot :)  And I thought the stars added a nice Christmas touch.  So this piece is actually the bottom of the card ... hard to tell in the picture (I'll include a picture down further).

 My sweet little Bugaboo girl coloured ... very happy with the colouring :)
 At this point I was still not exactly sure what I was going to do for the final layout ... nothing is stuck down yet.  You can see the extra white on the base that I ended up sticking the brads into.

I used a piece of shimmery pewter coloured cardstock under the image, then some shiny silver, then shiny gold, then corrugated silver on top of shiny red ... then sutck it all on a white base card.  I put the little circle paperclip on the corner with some ribbon as it just needed that little something extra ... and also its a little bit more metal.

Thanks for checking out my latest creation.  Hopefully I'll be back tonight with something else :)
Until next time ... happy blogging.
