Turn up the Metal!

Are you ready to rock? Well, you would think that's what Flourishes' Release Week Challenge is all about just by looking at the title! Actually, it's about the shine and glitz that metallic can bring during the holidays. So, we offer you.....


HOW TO PLAY: Silver, gold, copper, or bronze -- whichever metal you pick, just make sure it has a presence on your creation! Just that simple -- use a little metal on your card and you're in the running.

Want to see my creation? I have to say I started with a little Mojo Monday inspiration. You can check out this week's sketch HERE! It's a fun one!
I used the Sweets of the Season set from Flourishes for my main image. I just love this candy cane - there are so many cute images in that set, I tell ya! After I stamped the candy canes on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock, I colored them up using the Poppy, Spring Greens and Holly collections grouped by Flourishes and added a dash of Glitter Glue! The rest is just decorative paper, some metal faux nail head stickers, a little glitz in the way of some gold stitching, green ribbon and some fabulous red foil paper. I used the Spellbinders Classic Circles Die and Blossom dies for my main image and mat. The punch is a Stampin' Up punch. And that, my friends, is it! Where's the metal? In the metal foil paper, the nail head stickers, even the gold thread! Want to see a close up?

Keep in mind, the deadline for this challenge is Friday, October 14th at 5PM EST. If you upload to SCS, please use the Keyword- FLLCOCT11 so folks can find and see your entries! After you create your card, be sure to head on over to the Flourishes Blog and link up your creation on the challenge post there. This month, Flourishes has FOUR new stamp sets to share. The previews start next Tuesday and just think, by entering this challenge you could WIN them all! This card also qualifies for Stacy's Christmas Spirit Challenge that you can read up on HERE!  It's called 'Shiny Like a Piece of Candy!' :-)
