I knew exactly what I was going to do when I saw this challenge posted. I have had a few packages of metal pieces laying on my table for quite a little while & this was the perfect time to dive into them. Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a Heinrich Company is loaded with inspiration this week. I hope that you have time to play along!

My card is about 5 x 5.
The shape was cut using Spellbinder dies.
OOPSY DAISY was used for the image & sentiment. I colored the image with COPIC MARKERS.
The butterfly & brad are from G45. I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks in Willow, Juniper & Meadow with Snow Cap mixative to add the verdegris look.

Welcome to another week of fun at FOSTV!! I just couldn't wait to play with the LADY LIBERTY MINI SET . After my order came the other day, I immediately set about getting things ready for our 4th of July bbq. I tend to go a little crazy in the kitchen AND the craft room when a holiday rolls around. As you can see, my family (as well as the neighbors) benefited from my preparations for this photo shoot.

Have a safe & happy holiday!
Hope to see you over at FOSTV!!
