Creative Belli Challenge - Round & Metal

Well, it's the 3rd Wednesday after the 2nd Saturday and the 9th day after the new moon that occurred in the 8th month of the year, so you know what that means....

It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge!!! Haha I LOVE bi-weekly challenges, don't you? The weeks fly by way too fast for me, so a challenge every two weeks is PERFECT!!



Stamps: Squigglefly digi (from tiny acorns)
sentiment -SU! words of wisdom
Paper: SU! kraft, BasicGrey dp
Ink: Prisma pencils
Other: twine, Offray ribbon,
CM circle punch, Cropadile hole punch,
SU! brads


Ok, for this challenge, we're looking for ROUND & METAL, think brads, hardware, metal-edge tags, etc...
There is also an optional round sketch if you would like to go that direction. You are all wonderfully talented artists so be creative!!!
