Robyn's Fetish Challenge # 186 : use metal, Real or Faux

Good afternoon,

May be one day my life will be easy and smooth...... Had a stunning time in England, and came back and fall at work.....Where I was not suppose to be, but just been nice and do my boss a favour!!!! Never again!!!! have hurt my knee and can't drive or walk well......Paradise!!!!!

Anyway, it's Sunday and it's time for a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish Challenge and this week we wish you to "Use Metal, real or Faux". We are sponsored by Fred She Said, and the price for the winner is a £10 voucher to their shop.

I have coloured the Pumpinks and Sunflowers with my Spectrum Noirs in the following colours : 104/100/120/33/24/35/45/163 nad 48. 

I have than cut the digi with cissors. 
For my "metal" piece, I have used a piece of kitchen Tin Foil, that I have embossed with my Spellbinders M'bossability "Flora", and used it as my backing paper. 

I made flowers to decorate the card with pieces of tin foil also, and add some brads for the heart of them. I finish my card with a French sentiment from TLC which means "Happy Birthday". 

I will enter my card in the following challenge :
One Stitch At A Time : Anything Goes
That's it for me today. KEEP CALM AND CRAFT ON !!!!!!!!
