The Paper Shelter Challenge #184 - Metal, Somewhere, Somehow

Good afternoon and welcome to another challenge from team B over at The Paper Shelter Challenge blog. This week we are challenging you to use metal somewhere in your project. I first thought this would be really hard, but it's quite easy - think charms, brads, eyelets, metal embellishments, bells (perfect for the current season) and so on.

I used the cute and new digi The Most Adorable Snowmen and they really are adorable! I also used the background paper, although I ended up covering most of it up with all my die cute and other bits.

This card is also for The Outlawz Saturday Paper A La Mode Challenge to use the theme winter and some metal and Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #263 to use something sparkly/blingy/glittery - think I have that one covered!
