Using Metal for Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge...

Good morning again blogging friends....I had the opportunity today to make a card this morning for the Stampin' Sisters In Christ challenge. This week we were asked to make a project using metal. I had some silver metal sheets lying around, so I put a bit of it in a Cuttlebug Edge embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot.....I then dug in the archive of Paper Craft Planet and found a sketch in their sketch challenge.

Another fun challenge that I am entering my card in is the Papercraft Connection September Gallery Challenge. The challenge over there is to use "type or text" on your card.
I was able to get "text" a couple of different ways. First I grabbed a paper pad from K&Co. (Sera Sera) and second a stamp from Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous. Fun, fun!! I also got to use my new Verve Sets!!!

This next photo shows the flowers that I stamped on Graphix Clear Craft Plastic, cut them out and then put the heat tool to it. After a bit, they started to curl beautifully!!!
Thanks for taking the time today to stop by and check out my creation!!

Here are the supplies I used to make this card:
Card Stock: Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
Ink: Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight (Stampin' Up); Jet Black (Stazon)
Stamps: Happy Hello, Great Friend (Verve), Stampers Anonymous
Dies: Pinking Circles, Classic Circles (Spellbinders), Edged Square (Nellie's Choice Dies)
Extras: Grafix Clear Craft Plastic, Red Liquid Pearls (Ranger); Metal sheets (craft supply), embossing folder (Provo)

Thanks again, have a good day!!!

Recently in Poland to hear a lot of celebration commemorating the creation of Solidarity. There are many discussions on this subject and some of them are very controversial. I wonder whether in other countries, people know what it is and if they have solidarity on this issue a sentence?
