Here's what I came up with using a couple Penny Black items:
I started by inking up the Snowy Grove image from PB with Versafine Black Onyx ink and then used clear embossing powder over the image and heat set it. Next I sprinkled mostly Cobalt Blue Brushos and just a little bit of Purple Brushos over the stamped image and then misted with water till I got the colors I wanted. Once it had dried, I added a torn piece of white cardstock to the bottom of the image to resemble a snowbank and stamped my sentiment from Altenew's Blessing's stamp set.
I popped up my image with foam and then added a die cut dove from PB (Peaceful Wishes) that I had embossed with silver 3 times to give it more of a metal look rather than just embossed. I really love how this card turned out!
This challenge is open till the 24th, and the DT has some AMAZING cards to inspire you this month. They also have a bunch of really great videos for you to check out if you're unsure how to do the METAL technique. You can find it all right HERE to play along.
My card will also work for this month's CAS Christmas challenge which is to use a BIRD on your card.

Also wanted to share a few pictures from my AMAZING weekend in Wisconsin. I spent the day Saturday traveling to Wisconsin with Sue, Michele, & Bobby and met the wonderful Gina K at her store in Greendale WI...what a gracious and kind woman!!
On Sunday, we traveled to Wind Lake, WI and had an absolutely wonderful morning/afternoon with Darnell, Bev, Anita, Kara, and Kelly (Kelly, I'm so sorry I didn't get you in any of my pictures...grrrr!!)! Oh, and how could I forget?! I got to meet the famous "Hammy" too!
The other gals took so many more pictures than I did, so hopefully they will be surfacing around blogland and IG and you'll be able to see all of us! I don't know why it still amazes me after experiencing KANSAS how a group of women who have never met before can connect so fully and feel like they've known each other FOREVER!! Every one of these ladies was absolutely delightful and have become even more dear to me! I feel so blessed to be a part of this amazing community!
Thanks so much for sticking with me through such a looooong post and hope you all have a wonderful week!!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
