Frilly & Funkie Chipboard/Metal Challenge

Good morning, it is time for another Frilly & Funkie Challenge, it is chipboard and metal.  This weeks challenge is brought to us by Marjie, here are the details...This week we're looking for two elements on the project of your choice.  We want to see chipboard and metal.  It can be purchased, homemade, or faux.  You can use branded chipboard pieces or cut up a cereal box... choose items from the hardware store or simple household metals like staples or paperclips. Ranger's foil sheets would work too. The options are endless! We want you to be creative and can't wait to see what you share with us.  I have used the gorgeous chipboard snowflakes from Melissa Frances, my metal is the cute little jingle bells.  I stained the snowflake with Tim Holtz distressed stain and then covered it with white crackled paint, I was amazed at how much the stain showed through, I adore the look!  I have used the Sketchbook Saturday sketch and the inspiration came from The Shabby Tea Room.  I had a blast with this weeks challenge....enjoy!
