Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge - Charming!

I am finally back with a card to share with you :-) Our new Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge has just started and this week I am your host. I am asking you to use metal somewhere on your card or project. This could be charms, spacer beads, head pins, brads or any metal embellishment.

I was a little upset that I didnt' have time to play along with Inge's challenge last week so made sure that today's card was also using the great colour combination Brown, blue and white!

The image on my card is my little bookworm daughter Zoe - A good book. I have coloured with my Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The papers are from the DCWV Garden Party stack. This stack also contains some pretty pink and green designs as well as the yummy chocolate, cream and blue. I sell DCWV over in my store in handy try-me packs. The pretty circle is a Nellie Snellen Multi die. The gorgeous flower with metal centre and gem is from the Prima Homespun Elegance bright selection. They also are available in Vintage. I have also used 8mm flat back pearls in chocolate and white. The swirly metal embellishment was sent to me some time ago from my friend Kelly.
