PIO #21 Metal

Start piling it on now and don't stop till your fingers are bleeding and so numb you can't move them.
This week at Pile It On the challenge is "Metal" and you have got to play along.  Our sponsor this week is Add a Little Dazzle and the prize is a $25 gift certificate.  You don't want to miss out on that prize.  Do like me and make a masculine card and enter it in their challenge for an extra chance to win.  I'm telling you that you are going to love, love, LOVE THIS stuff.  What is it?  It's that gorgeous shiny paper I've run through the my hot shot with an embossing folder and a die cut and look at those fab results.  It comes in plenty of colors, it's not too thick and there are ideas and tips on the web site.  I've purchased other foil paper but it was much thicker and not fun to play with, this is fun.  I'm putting my thinking cap on, I'd like to use it on for a Christmas card.   So get cracking and make a card to enter in our Pile It On challenge, don't forget you have to enter at least one other challenge, so it might as well be Add a Little Dazzle's.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Crafty Secrets "Car Classics"
ink - Versamark
paper - Add a Little Dazzle - "Black Diamond Metal Sheet"; My Favorite Things "Steel Blue" and "Sweet Tooth" card stock; Stampin' Up "Basic Black" card stock
