Challenge #156 - Metal

Hello my crafty friends!  It's snowing here in the mountains of Utah  . . . so beautiful.  The first snow is always exciting to me and makes me feel like listening to Christmas music.  I have to confess . .   we started playing Christmas music this weekend at our house.  Not every day, but . . . . we love Christmas music!

Are you ready for another fun challenge?!

This week's challenge: Metal 
(use something metal on your project - real or faux)

Karen, Gwen, and Kate have created some beautiful cards and boxes to inspire you!!:


Karen's ornament is absolutely gorgeous! Love the snowy swirls and the metal corner brackets, charm and bells!  Lots of fun details on this card!
