A Little Bit of Metal for Elphine House Australia

It's time again for another challenge over at Elphine House Australia!  This time, Lynda challenged us to use some metal on our project.  This was a stretch for me because metal is something that I don't have much of in the way of craft supplies or embellishments but I did the best I could with what I have!

Daisy: Standing Tall has always been one of my favorites and I thought she's be perfect for the metal sentiment I found.  It says "Moments" and when I look at this cutie pie, I see her remembering or either making a moment.

I colored her with copics and added some stickles to her dress, hat and flowers.  I cut her out with Nestabilities and added some pearls and glass gems on metal stems.  This gorgeous papers are from an Authentique paper pack called Remembrance that I got from Kim at Cutter's Creek.  The pearls are from Hero Arts, the ribbon is from Simplicity, and the sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Here's a bit of a closer look at her.

I absolutely love the sweet faces that Elisabeth Bell uses in her illustrations.

Thought I'd share a few close ups of different parts of the card.

Absolutely gorgeous, don't you think?  I used some Diamond Glaze on the ribbon on her dress and hat.

Here's a vie that shows some of the dimensions of the card.

I plan on entering her in the following challenges:

Make sure to stop over at the Elphine House Australia Design Team blog and see the other gorgeous creations that my fellow designing team buddies have in store for you.  They're nothing short of spectacular and I'd hate for you to miss them!  And join us for our challenge and get your metal on!
