Pile It On Challenge 21 Use some Metal

Hello again, I am late posting this one as I have been to see my Granny, thankfully she is getting better, she is still old, frail and a bit poorly but not ill like she has been so that is excellent news. Anyway onto the crafting, this time at Pile It On we are asking you to use some metal on your project. We are sponsored by Add a Little Dazzle who very kindly sent some metal sheets for us to play with. 

Our sponsor is Add a Little Dazzle, a fun store and blog dedicated to beautiful metal sheets. Be sure to check out their weekly challenge too! One lucky participant will win a $25 GC to the Add a Little Dazzle Store

Are you ready to take your crafting to the next level? Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets will help you turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

I have gone with the pink and black from the selection I received. I used my Tonic dies to cut out the shapes. The metal cut easily in the eBosser, I just ran it through twice to help the pieces come out of the more intricate sections. I used a scrap of black paper and a punch to create some paper lace to hide the join on the background die. I swiped the card with some distress ink as I didn't like it just white, some gems and that was it. I really wanted the metal to be the star f the show so I kept the card fairly simple.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
