Heavy Metal

Hi everyone, Here's another card made with Magnolia stamps, Pirate Tilda and Edwin( Just love Tilda with the heart eye-patch ! ) Coloured them with copic, I have limited colours so make do with what I have. : ) I think they look so cute sitting on the metal .I have used the Sketch From CLP .Have added a few metal brads, staples , silver metallic looking glitter paper and embossed metal looking image.I have used cardboard as the base of my card,matted everything on.Used the two strips of  light blue cardstock paper to secure the two cardboard together,added brads for deco and to ensure that it holds well too.Add on a cord/rope!?-maybe a trim not sure what to call it.DIY some flowers with the glitter paper and added gems to the center.Love how it looks!- Don't like using glitter cardstock they tend to curl up...but found a great use for it now!

As for the inside of the card ,I created a wood background,which made the metallic flowers and emboss image pop, added gems too!
