Back in business

I feel like I've been away from Stamping FOREVER...having a baby and making wedding invitations will do that to you, however. Here's a challenge card that's over 2 months old. I FINALLY had the time to sit down and whip it up the other day. The challenge was to make a "green" card with something "found" outside. My "something found" happens to be the little metal circle. There are a bunch of new homes going up in our neighborhood and I picked up a few of these shiny metal circles on the ground near the homes. I stamped in CRAFT chocolate chip and then embossed with clear embossing powder. In order to get the chunky glitter to stick, I wrapped each metal circle with "sticky tape" and then rolled it in the glitter, voila, BLING!! Also, my first time using smooch spritz, FUN FUN! Just make sure you have a small shoe box to spray in or you'll have smooched your entire desk...Also inked up my NEW Artistic Etchings stamp set for the first time.

Those metal discs are awesome! What a great look you gave them with the heat embossing! Very cool! :)
