Good morning everyone hope you are all well and happy !
Im very pleased and proud to say that this post today is my first one as the new DT member for
Very happy and excited to be part of such a talented team !

The theme for this challenge is Show Some Metal and i have to say that i have really enjoyed making this card and i hope you like it as much as i do .
And here it is !

this is how i made it
for the base i used a plain white 14.5cm square card blank to wich a attatched using pritt stick backing paper from The Almanac Collection by Prima .
I then used metalic promarkers and a gold gel pen to add some metal effect to the pocketwatch image  and glued on some 3mm gold gems around the watch face and attatched the image again with pritt stick . I then added a piece of chain to the top of the pocketwatch and down the card using red double sided tape and popped on a gold metalic card candi at each end .
for the little bow embelish at the top right corner i wound around my fingers some copper beading wire and metalic thread and attatched using red double sided tape .
to finish i added the memories sentiment wich is part of the papermania elegance collection .
