Using Metal on Your Card

Good Morning and a Happy Tuesday

It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches, Melissa has shaken it up a bit this week as we don't have a sketch for you. But we have a challenge and that is Melissa wants to see how you can add some Heavy Metal to your card or project. How fun right?

I found these medal label holders in one of my craft drawers, I totally forgotten I had them and they must of been there for eons as they are from Stampin Up and I bought them when they first came out. Yikes, makes me wonder what else I have that I haven't used in ages. That would be a good weekend project to go through my craft room and organized everything to find all the must have stuff I am not using.

My image is from a brand new company Teddy bo and Co. I just fell in love with them and wanted to share their cuteness with you. I colored them up with my Prisma Pencils and Gamsol (another item I have don't use as much anymore)
Since we didn't have a sketch to work with this week, I found the Sweetest Thing sketch this week to be one I wanted to work with so I used it to inspire my layout.

DRS is our sponsor this week along with this week's is a judged challenge too!

Now take a moment and go over and check out all of the design teams cards, they are always the best and this week they are sharing some Fabulous designs with Metal.
