Magnolia Down Under Challenges #90

Good morning everyone :)  How is your weekend going? I have had a great weekend so far. Yesterday we took the boys down to visit with my parents for the day. We went to the Zoo first of all with Grandma and Poppy and they had a ball, then on to my parents 'farm' for lunch and a play. The boys were exhausted by the time we had to pile into the car to come home, but they had such a blast - and so did we! I think Grandma and Poppy did too :) Today we are expecting a visit from my sister and otherwise a quiet day. Maybe there is a bit of a chance to sit and colour ;)

Anyway, my card today is for the current Magnolia Down Under Challenge! We are up to week 90 already, gosh, how time flies! This week we are looking for.... HEAVY METAL!


I haven't used any Tilda or Edwin for my card! Oh my! What am I thinking? hahaha. But I did use the gorgeous new accessory stamp from the Spring club "Tulip Wheelbarrow" and also part of the Happy Easter sentiment. I just inked up the section I wanted to put in my little silver frame.

Everything is, of course, coloured with Copics. The papers are Prima "Annalee" - nope, I am not sick of them yet :) The cardstock is American Crafts white and it is all stitched on the sewing machine. The silver photo corner and photo tab things (technical term, lol) are from Kraft Outlet. The silver sentiment frame is SU. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have hand stitched some blue acrylic beads onto the blue gingham ribbon as well. I've had these sitting in a container for some time and I acidentally knocked it over while I was making the card and had a little flash of an idea. Just something a little bit different :)

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
