TIOT #41- Metal Musings

Our Try It Out Tuesday challenge this week is Metal Musings! Use metallic products/embellishments on your project (Smooch, Inspiration Paints, metal craft sheets, brads, eyelets, charms, etc).

Be sure to check out Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see how you can play along with us and also to see the other great creations by my fellow design team members. 

I still am just in love with the latest release of Victoria Case for SCACD, The Winter Wonderland Collection, so I chose BFF's to work with today.  
I can't remember where I saw this technique that I've been using lately of sponging the edges while the image is still in the nestibilities, but where ever I saw it, I love it!! (so thank you whomever gave me the idea!)

I guess I'm still thinking in terms of CAS (clean and simple) as this card qualifies but I just love how the adorable image stands out!

I also think I sort of lost track of the challenge as I was creating! LOL! Hopefully the team will forgive me as I didn't use much "metal" but I did use Smooch on the bells and the Primas Card Jewelry was just too perfect for this card so maybe it'll count!  






supplies:
I won't be around to comment today. I'm off on Annabelle's first field trip with her! Then it's Kung Fu night for the kiddos so not much time today. 
Thank you to all who commented on my post down below as well about comments. You all are so sweet!!
