Heavy Metal

Hello again!
To see my first post for today, please scroll down or go here.  

I am back with another card.  This one was made for the Flourishes Heavy Metal Challenge.  This time, they want us to use something metal or metallic on our project.

This is my take:

For metallic accents, I used this gorgeous handmade paper that I bought at one of my LSS's...I think it's made in Thailand...but, it could be India...LOL...I don't know the name of the brand but, all of their papers are fabulous!  

Well, I didn't stop there!  I also used an antique gold satin ribbon on the card and made a matching ribbon flower that I learned how to make in this tutorial.  It was my first attempt to make one of these flowers and I think it turned out pretty well!  

As if that weren't enough, I then added SU! Glass Glitter in Champagne to the main image mat.

Ok, I'm going to retreat back to my craft room again and see if I can make a card for the Flourishes Name Game Challenge in time...we'll see, it's going to be tight since I have somewhere to be in an hour or two....eek!

Thank you SO much for stopping by!
