Week 49 Metal Mania at Sugar Creek Hollow

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
It is week 49 at Sugar Creek Hollow, and our theme this week is "Metal Mania" we would like to see you use some metal in your vintage or shabby chic style creations. 
  I thought I would create an Easel Card, here it is below.
I used a Collage sheet that I designed for Gecko Galz.  
  I used some fabby trims and ribbon from 
Here are some close ups.  I found a cute little metal heart charm that I tied a piece of aqua baker's twine to create a little bow.
  I distressed the edges with  ranger's vintage photo distress inks.  You can see the old gold diamond ribbon  tucked in on the right The pink leaves and Juliet Lacepeek out behind the pink rose.
I used the Candi Fix it foam pads to elevate my sentiment, embellished it with some more pink leaves, Juliet lace, vintage buttons, pink and white diagonal ribbon, and cotton candy baker's twine.  I added some of my favorite Champagne pearls too.

 I used one of my favorite punches from Martha Stewart for the paper peeking out of the top, adds a nice soft dainty touch.
 I love it!  One last look of the whole card....

I can't wait to see your shabby and or vintage style creations over at Sugar Creek Hollow.

If you use spring colors and some ribbon, you can play along with the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge as well!!

Thank you for visiting
