Piling It On Some More

I've been making sentiment cards lately.  It took forever for me to feel comfortable with them but now that I've got a few under my belt I find that I want to make them.  I wonder if this means that they are going out of fashion?

This week is my third week as a guest designer for the Pile It On challenge.  The challenge is to "Show us Some Metal" and the sponsor is Simon Says.  Great Sponsor, they've got everything you want and need.  For metal, I used some bards that you can see and some die cuts that you can't see.  At least you should be able to see the brads on the card, they're painted but they're metal.  
don't forget the inside

For Pile It On, all you have to do is combine one other challenge with their challenge, but the more challenges the merrier.  Why not join in the fun, you could win a little shopping at the Simon Says store, who can't use that?

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Clearly Sentimental About Vacations"
ink - Close To My Heart "Olive" for sentiment; Ranger "Vintage Photo" for distressing
paper - Stampin' Up "Soft Suede" cs; Wausau "Celason" cs; K & C "Life's Journey" dp
miscellaneous - My Favorite Things die-namics; square brads; mini brads; lace; pleated ribbon; Stampin' Up pearl; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
Pile It On #25 - Show Us Some Metal
Stamp Something - Pretty Paper
Southern Girls #21- Anything Goes
Simon Say - Bingo (Flowers, brads and sentiments)

Top Tip #38 - open challenge

Paper Variety #38 - 2 or more text types
