Use Some Metal @ Diva's

Morning Guys, I'm not saying good as it's still FAR TOO COLD to be cheerful, especially when I spent the day down the seafront working to get ready for the up and coming summer season and it was freezing!! I didn't get finished and will be heading back for another go today.

But first things first, it's time for a new challenge at


and this week Rebekah has chosen

Use Some Metal

I have to be honest I didn't have time to make a card using the sponsors image and this was made a while ago for a friend and not blogged so I kinda hope Rebekah doesn't mind!!

My lovely much used Blanche from Saturated Canary, I've definitely had my money's worth out of this image lol, she makes me think of the Tennessee Williams play 'A Streetcar Named Desire' don't ask me why!! The papers are Bo Bunny Isabella and the flowers mostly from WOC I painted my tiny wooden letters to match and my metal is in the form of a crown pin and a bead spacer I used as a belt buckle.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and some 'Divalicious' inspiration from my teammies.

Thanks for dropping by, I'll be back tomorrow with my MAWTT card even if I freeze to death as it's scheduled!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges
I Stop Crafts - Recipe (1 Image, 2 Embellishments, 3 Papers)
Sweet Stampin' - Lots Of Layers
Bearly Mine - Girly Pink

Wowwwww Laurie... such a stunning card... I bet it was received with pleasure! Yep, I love Blanche too and can see what you mean about Blanche in the play... and this one would certainly attract Brando!! Of course, I love the colours you've used... and oooh to the belt buckle idea!

Blimey you WILL freeze today if that wind keeps up... we're still getting snow flurries, but I'm going to try to go out today for the first time since last Friday!!

Big hugs
