Dilly Beans Metal Accents Challenge

It's Friday, and you know that means another fab challenge at Dilly Beans Designers and Challenge Blog.  This week we're featuring metal accents.  My original plan was to make an ATC to enter in the Wicked Wednesday ATC Add a Charm challenge and that I did, using #339 Frida's Flower Headband (flipped).  I colored the metal charm with a Bic marker and strung it on a wine charm for a necklace.  Her hair is paper pieced and I've added tiny metal roses to her hair.  But it'a a card you say.  Well yes, it is.  I wanted to include the "inspire" sentiment because it is also metal and because I find Frida Kahlo such an inspiring artist.  Kinda love the bow strings embossing folder by Sizzix, too.

But I've made the ATC removeable by using 2 layers of card stock and cutting a flap in on of the layers so it can slide over the pink strip on the card.  The 2 layers makes the ATC much sturdier too.

So TA DAA!  The ATC on it's own, ready to be entered in The Wicked Wednesday Challenge, the Simon Says Stamp Paper Piecing Challenge, and the Moving along with the Times Bling it On challenge.

And don't forget to pop by the Dilly Beans Shop to Check out the fab sale going on.  Get the deets HERE.
