Be yourself

Hi all
A bit of a departure from my usual 'pretty' cards.
I wanted a gungy look for a teenage Birthday.

I used a Coke can for the metal bits and used it so you could see
the printed side of the can for a more grungy look, don't know if
this is allowed!!

Hope you like this and leave comments for me, for or against,  all useful.

I will enter this card into the following Challenges.

Dream Valley Challenge  Earth Tones

Craft your days away  Metal

Cute card Thursday  Metallica

Craft Pad  Challenge   Live on the edge

The Pixy Cottage Challenge   Green and gorgeous + Sketch
