Fun challenge, Hannah. I hope metallic = metal. I used lots of metallic EPs for my design, with a little glass thrown in.

YOU ROCK

What could be heavier than an OLD car? Those things weighed a TON and are made of metal, so that is the image I used on

Great challenge, Hannah! There are so many possibilities but I had to choose just one for today so I used that neglected vanilla Hodgepodge hardware for my card. Here is Girly Metal Thanks for the challenge..

I finished my card and I can't believe the teeny, tiny bits of metal that I put on it. I hope it counts

I just realized that my Dirty Dozen challenge card for this month will also qualify for the heavy metal of the WT challenge.
