Heavy Metal Holiday

Hold on to your Christmas stockings, because CSAYL has a new sponsor today!

Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations! Kenny and Elena were generous enough to donate digi images this week to three, count em' THREE, lucky winners!! First place will get their choice of 3, Second place will get their choice of 2 and Third place will get their choice of 1!

This week we're going "Heavy Metal".
I want all you rockin' ladies to bust out that metal hardware and use it on your holiday card or project.  Metal frames, tags, brads, eyelets, pins - whatever floats your boat!

Here's what I came up with...

This uber-adorable image is called "Xmas Shopping" and I just love her!
She was so much fun to color with my Copics.  I popped up a few parts of the image with dimensionals for some added layers and *pop*.
Check out that little pearl earring - love it!
For the "Heavy Metal" part, I used silver brads to frame the main image and a mini library clip on the sentiment.  Be sure to check out KennyK's FAB shop and then hop on over to the CSAYL blog to play along with us!

After I did this card, I did some perusing around the web and found some new challenges that I could enter with my card.  Holy-Moly!  There are a bunch of really great challenge sites out there!  I've never done this before, but what the heck, here goes....
Art Impressions Stamps - use something from your stash (brads and clip)
AUD Sentiments Challenge - use at least 2 words
Craft Us Crazy - Christmas in July
Moving Along with the Times - Christmas in July
ABC Christmas - No designer paper
The House that Stamps Built - Christmas in July
The Little Red Wagon - Christmas in July
The Paper Shelter - Lots of dots
OWH Stars and Stamps - Christmas in July
The Paper Variety - Christmas in July
