Belli Challenge # 70 - Metal tags

This week's Creative Belli Challenge is to use metal tags. I stewed over what to do for this challenge - I have a Memory Makers tag maker, but I've not had very good luck with it, so I wanted to do something else. Then I remembered all the Grungeboard I have and forget to use! I pulled out an oval tag to use for my sentiment and painted it with a Copper Paint Dauber from Ranger. I added a couple of copper brads to finish off the tag.

For my main image, I pulled out my brand new Strawberries set from Flourishes and inked up the basket of berries and then colored my berries with Copic markers. They were topped off with some shimmer from a couple of Spica pens.

The papers are from the Provocraft Pathways Romance Pad and the ribbon is from Michael's. The card layout is based on the Mojo Monday sketch from July 13th. I turned the sketch on its side to accommodate my image.

I hope you'll play along with us this week! Create your card with a metal tag and share it with us. If you upload your card to SCS or to PCP, please use keyword CBC70. Don't forget to add your link using our Mr. Linky widget on today's post over on the Creative Belli blog.
