Cute Card Thursday #58

...Mirror Mirror!
This time round over at CCT the prompt is to use something shiny on your cards!

Well i didn't want to go for a big shiny piece of card so opted for a more subtle inclusion and have an assortment of little things instead.
The skull {minxyart stamp} was stamped onto TSS pink metal, and cut out, the ickle shiny eyelets were added to give a lace up effect, of which i threaded pink metallic cord through.
I used 2 DCWV rockstar papers and a sheet of blackmagic core'denations which i sanded and roughed up to let the pink colour shine through.
The gorjuss images is coloured using my copics, and i added a small black bead chain as a headband.
I gathered a piece of lace and used tiny black brads to pin each gather in place, I stamped the zip {minxyart stamp} and gave it some definition using a silver promarker on the opposite side to balance and finish the card. The tag {also metal} has a "rock" dymo type label attached.
I hope there is enough "shiny" on my card to please the CCT team!
Thanks for stopping by, come back any time xx
