eclectic Paperie and Add a Little Dazzle Blog Hop (Day2)

Welcome to Day 2 of the eclectic Paperie & Add a Little Dazzle Blog Hop! 
 We have more exciting projects to share with you as we continue with our Blog Hop.

My creation...

You can see that I have created a simple layout using the Outrageously Orange Metal Sheet from
 Add a Little Dazzle.  It matched perfectly with my "Date Night" paper by Chickaniddy Crafts.  Working with metal is new to me, so cutting it with a die cutting machine was my obvious choice.  I dug out my Big Shot and my favorite dies to include Decorative Strip Spring Greenery.
I layered, added a few of my loose embellishments, machine sewed and added a few splashes of Dylusions Ink Sprays.  
If playing with something new frightens you, try small steps.  Like I just did.  I loved the brightness the metal brought to my page.  Hmmm, maybe next time I will try sanding a little bit.
