QUICK POST BEFORE WORK

This is the card that I made for the "metal" swap at last Sunday's stamp club.

I wasn't sure what to do. I am not a big "metal user except for brads and eyelets and I wanted to use a bit more metal than that. So I remembered these sweet little double heart charms I found at Michael's in the bridal section. Still not a lot of metal on this card but better than what I normally use. I think the reason I don't normally use much is I am always worried that the card will be too bulky to mail for just 41 cents.

The rest of the items used for this card other than the Prima flowers were from scraps lying around on my stamp table from the preparing of card kits I needed for Saturday. There is only one stamp used on this card. It is the Happy Birthday sentiment from SU's Birthday Whimsy sell-a-bration set. The diagonal strips look like ribbon bust are actually scraps of Elegant Eggplant card stock.

A very quick and easy card.
