*Use It Tuesday #17*

The girls over at Use It Tuesday sure have picked some tough challenges... at least tough for me!!!  Each time I have a thought in my head but no way of completing it without heading off to buy something, which is against the rules of the Use It Tuesday challenges.

Yup, you're supposed to dig into your stash to find the items to create your project following the challenge prompt.... and then you need to tell us exactly what you dug out of your stash.

This week, the challenge is to use METAL in your creation....

So this week, my second idea was to use some old Stampin' Up! brads that I *had* to have, but that were "too pretty for  me to use"....  I figured I might as well use four if I was going to use one....  I also grabbed out some Bazzill Bling cardstock that I haven't been using lately as well as a piece of silver shimmer cardstock that I cherish too much to use LOL!

Items Used: 

*Cardstock: Bazzill Bling; PTI White; silver shimmer
*Images:  Hero Arts Sending Smiles
*Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
*Tools:  Martha Stewart border punch
*Embellishments: Stampin' Up! decorative brads
*Challenges:  UseItTuesday#17

I hope you'll take some time to play along with us!
