Challenge #16 Metal

It's time for another Crafty Creations challenge. Thanks to all of you who participated in last week's chocolate challenge - the winner will be announced soon...

This week we challenge you to use metal in your project. Our super sponsor is The Earring Boutique and the lucky winner of this challenge will receive a beautiful pair of 14 K swarovski crystal earrings. Head over to the Earring Boutique and check out Sandy's beautiful work.

Here's a little inspiration from the design team. Our Guest Designer this week is Paula of Pollys Card Heaven and she made this cute Christening card.

Saskia embellished her adorable ATCs with metal accents.

The metal charms on Deena's mini travel journal are the perfect touch.

How much fun is Jaime's memo board - I'd love this in my house!

And finally I chose to make an altered altoid tin for a gift card.

Leave a comment with a link to your project - we can't wait to see your creations with metal!
