Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 46 - Metallica


Today's card is for Cute card Thursday I know, I know, the same card challenge site for my last two cards, but different challenges! that's because I was so late with my card for the last challenge and now I'm really early for this one!
Challenge 46 Metallica
Very simple one, use some metal on your card i.e. charms, wire, spacers, eyelets, metal coloured card, fabric or paper etc.

I decided to use metallic cardstock and really strong, funky colours for this (probably a reaction from using so many pretty stamps and pastel colours lately LOL!) unfortunately, my scanner hated it!
The background miri card and the swirl are a bright fuchsia pink and the cuttlebugged miri is a bluey purple colour and they actually do match the colours I've used for the image irl!

Card Details:
* Image - Nay by Rubber Romance
* Image coloured with Letraset Pro-markers

Great card Chrissie - you are getting carried away - I'm sure I've already commented on one of your cards today.

Slow down please you're making me feel guilty.

Oh, Chrissie, I really like this! Darn these scanners, they won't pick up any of our fun stuff, like glitter, shimmery and shiny papers and bling!
I think your card looks fabulous regardless! Love that image and you colored her beautifully! Now I'm hungry for chocolate!
Always enjoy visiting your blog!
Blessings, Maria
