Once Upon a Wednesday...Sketch and Metal

Ready for a little midweek fun? Welcome to the new Once Upon a Wednesday challenge at the Pixie Cottage. This weeks challenge is to use a sketch and or a little "Metalwork". This could be metallic paper, brads, eyelets, charms, clips, anything metal at all!
There are so many possibilities with this challenge so let your creativity flow and join us for great prizes provided by Michelle!
Also we have a wonderful guest team member for June! Please send some love to Cabio! Her wonderful work can be seen at Cabio's Craft Corner.

Here is our fun and inspiring sketch this week.


My Card this week features a brand new stamp, Star Gazer by ArTish. Isn't it amazing! I absolutley love flower stamps and ArTish has created a beauty! I added some Metal Sugared Brads in orange for my metal accessory this week. I just bought this cool pack of Cosmo Cricket black board and decided to use it. I covered it with embossing ink and then sprinkled a sparkly embossing powder onto it. Once heat set it shines and sparkles :)
