DCM's weekly dare - Heavy Metal



This week at Daring Card Makers, Saffa Dared us to use 'Heavy Metal'... Great Dare Saffa...
This one caught my attention staight away, as anyone who knows me know's I love all things metal, esp, of the RUSTY OLD JUNK variety... I even have a Rabbit Trap converted into a toilet roll holder in my home... Yes you read that right.. LOL!!!
Blossoming bits for this card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Prima Petal Poetry Blossom, Heidi Swapp Blossom, K& Company 'you are mine' charm from Moniques swapp, Buckle form an op shop cost me 10cents, jump ring & necklace clasp, hole punch & my sewing machine.

Now make sure you pop over to the DCM's blog and check out what the other girls have been up to in the Metal Department.... and Maybe it's time you had a go yourself with this dare....

Go On I DARE YOU!!!!!!
***********
Tomorrow evening My time, My Urban Lily RAK draw will be drawn, so if you haven't already popped you name on the comment of the "Time to Share some of my Lovely Win" Post, please do, I'd love you to be in the draw.
Just make sure if your Annonymous that I can work out who you are, and work out if your Aussie or an overseas player... Looking forward to seeing who wins..

Gillian your card is to die for.......had to scrape my chin up off the foor when I saw it. The little belt.....excuse me while I stop drooling.........is gorgeous.
Your other cards are fab too. I would love to be able to do this style of card buT....
a)I can't seem to get it quite.
b)I am far too mean to use all that stash on one card.
