OLW 23 - heavy metal

Good afternoon everyone, a bit of a departure for me posting this late in the day!
it is due to the painting needing to be finished first, and YIPPEEEEEEEEE it's done now. I will have to start putting the room back together on Sunday so that I can see what I need, such as a table & chairs/bookshelves etc.
Anyhow, on to the card which is for Simplicity OLW - heavy metal


I was playing with my friend Viv's new stamps that she bought on our retail therapy trip and made this very simple one layer card in the hopes that it would be suitable for the OLW the next day and 'VOILA' it is just right (I hope). They want something metallic and I heat embossed the images with pewter embossing powder. I must have sent the right vibes over to Simplicity :o)
In the meantime, we had a great shopping trip and the day was brilliant, finishing with Viv's wonderful stew and dumplings (well actually, Viv made the stew and I made the dumplings)  :o) There was just one problem, when I got home I had left my purchases there, 50 miles away in Macclesfield BOOHOO. I got some scrumptious goodies and can't play with them yet :o(
