Growing old is optional

 I've used eyelets as my metal object.

 This is a close-up on the foil technique I've used and a paper clip as another metal object.

Good Day

Today I just had to escape to do some crafting to get some sanity again. It has been a rough few weeks lately. I've started this card a few weeks ago with some challenges with dots and stripes, but could never finish it in time. At first I had some dotted paper in my bigger oval, but changed it on last thought. It would have been a real reflection of my mood and it would have been probably be a reflection of the inner struggle people sometimes have in growing old. I changed it to the yellow corrugated paper to calm my mood. This is a digi and sentiment from Bugaboo and is called Gus Birthday optional. I just love it. On the blue I've used a texture plate to make the lines. Used a Fiskar border punch on the red foil and the striped paper is from DCWV - the grade school stack with glitter and foil. Craft your days away has a challenge on metal, so instead of the usual charm embellishment I have dig out my glue pen and foil for the motorbike and the edges on the sentiment tag. The other metal objects are eyelets and a paper clip.
