Team B's turn

Tuesday Throwdown is sponsored by Sweet n Sassy this week and they provided the image.
 The challenge is to use metal..First I embossed a piece of navy blue then stitched it onto
 to white.  After coloring my image I cut her with a Spellbinder die and foam dotted onto
 the navy blue piece.I used some very thin metal sheeting and cut out a sprocket then 
attached with my cool screw brad. Then sentiment was also attached to the metal. 
The whole time I was making this card I was chuckling to myself. My dad built 
houses and businesses  in our community for 40 years. I learned at 
an early age to form, frame, hang doors, sheetrock and mud etc. There is 
this picture in my head of showing up at a work site dressed like this
 and my Dads reaction!! LOL it would be something like 
Oh My Gosh Girl whatever are you thinking, you get 
home and get some clothes on right NOW!!

Davi, I think your dad would have sent you home if you'd shown up to work with him dressed this way! LOL!
I love your card and your stitching always amazes me because it's so perfect! Great coloring on this little lady and love the sheeting for the sprocket. Fantastic card!
I'm going to miss you at Tuesday Throwdown but you know I won't be far away.

Fabulous how you framed the blue on the white with stitching and then repeated the look on the die cut. Great brads. Wonderful coloring.
