Simon Says - Show us Metal

Another great theme this week, and one which I hope (once again) to have time to do something a bit more - well metallic!  However, time is short, I am away for a few days from the end of the week, so it may not happen.  Check out the other great entries at the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog here
In the meantime, this is a 21st birthday card for my nephew Robert.
Used the Umbrella Man, some Tim paper and TSS metal/mould for the 21 and a type charm to personalise the card. The metal is just the aluminium back of some copper, coloured with the steel blue inka gold paint. Yum!

I love that sentiment and I like that you used the type charm as the "R" in Robert!

Thanks so much for entering the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge!!!

I love Robert's card. I am certain he will be very impressed with it.

The thing about having so much stash is that you can't tidy it up too carefully because you need to find just what you want when you need it and if it is not in view then what do you do??
I have great problems in finding things I have tidied away.

Have a great week
