Lace, Pearls and Metal

Hi again :)
Something completely different from me today!
I have coloured one of my Kenny K-images in blue and brown (DistressMarkers and -refills), then I tried to find matching papers and stash for it. Usually when I make cards I, sort of, have in mind which papers to use, as I colour the image. Colouring this one I didn't think of papers at all. I just had a great time colouring!
Then, having made it difficult for myself, I figured I'd just continue that way, so I decided to try that metaltape-embossingthing that "everybody" seem to be doing now - FUN!
 Around the image I put on halfpearls in different shades of blue, brads (with gemstones in), some TH-gears, a button and Fastenaters in two of the corners (I had totally forgotten I had those...)
The paperedges (Papirdesign and Prima) are inked with DistressInk BlackSoot.
I tied a black satinribbon to the embossed heart and attached a keycharm to it.
To the tag (tucked under the image) I tied a black laceribbon.
The border is made with Martha Stewarts Doily Lace Edge Punch.

Here's the insides. Greetingpanels punched with Martha Stewarts Cherish PATP-set.
The stamped greeting is from Norsk Stempelblad AS.
The back of it, waiting for my "Made by..."-stamp :

Working on this card my Spellbinder broke, third time since November! 
I have waited for it to happen again. 
We managed to fix it - with tape(!) this time, so I could use it some more. 
Then, Wednesday I bought a new cutter, a Cuttlebug, and I already LOVE it!!!

Now; I'll send the card to these challengeblogs (hope they'll like it):

  15. One thing I'd really like to say is the fact car insurance termination is a hated experience so if you're doing the appropriate things like a driver you simply won't get one. A number of people do obtain notice that they've been officially dropped by their own insurance company and several have to struggle to get added insurance following a cancellation. Low cost auto insurance rates tend to be hard to get after the cancellation. Understanding the main reasons with regard to auto insurance termination can help people prevent completely losing in one of the most significant privileges readily available. Thanks for the thoughts shared via your blog.

  16. You made certain good points there. I did a search on the issue and found the majority of people will have the same opinion with your blog.
