It's Ladies in the Limelight Thursday!!
Here we are...1/2 way through Oct and it's time for a sketch/product challenge!

Here's the sketch:

And here are the details:

This week we're calling for you to get out your hardware!
That's right, put down the glitter for one day and get out some metallic elements for "manly" cards! Don't boo at me (or Brandi, since this is her idea)! ;)

We want to see brads, eyelets, spiral clips, ribbon slides, metal frames, even paper, or maybe some duct tape stickers!

There are lots of great products at Limelight to use, but if you don't have anything from Limelight, just use what you do have!

**Sketch and Product Challenge with a focus on hardware for cards for men.
**Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC006
**Post a link to your card over on Mandy's Blog by Sunday night (Oct 19)to be entered in a random drawing to WIN duct tape stickers and a package each of the large black eyelet brads and the small gunmetal eyelet brads!

Here's what I came up with for the challenge:

I thought this would be so cute for a little boy!

I used Party Animals by Pink Cat Studio.
I did some paper piecing...stamped the duck on the Basic Grey Sugared paper and pieced the duck's hat and body and cupcake.

The strip with 'quack' is 'bowed' out some for dimension.

The panel of patterned paper on the right side of the card is Candles from the Basic Grey Cupcake collection.

My 'hardware' is a glazed brad from the Basic Grey Cupcake Glazed Brads in the middle with two white brads on either side.
You can see a great set of neutral brads HERE.
