Here is my card for today.

 I am submitting this card for the ICR challenge # 21 Sketch + Metal-'URGE'y. I must say it is one of a kind challenge. I had to think hard to include appropriate design to suit the kind of metal I use on the card. And even the layout is restricted to one of the two sketches (Thank god I had a choice). I went with the sketch 1.

Here are a few close up where I had used metal on my card. I had used a safety pin and a few metal beads and a leaf I had to finish that tiny embellishment hanging below the sentiment.

I love this typical embellishment of an ancient coin design. I totally loved it and saved it to use on one of my best projects, which inspires me the most.

Here is their challenge pad. If you want to participate in the challenge too, then go ahead and click here.

I am also submitting this card for the following challenges:

Inspired by Stamping Challenge IBSC#26 here. They have posted the following sketch for the challenge this week.
