Happy Friday!

Friday's mean-
Stamp Simply
and today a blog candy winner!

So- Kristi email jimmipm@msn.com and let her know you won the Suzi Blu single!!

On to Sharon's Challenge-
Today we are thinking *hard rocks*  Think metals and stones as added elements for your project.

I went with a metal edge tag! I haven't used one in a while and thought it was the perfect time!  I have been on a rhinestone kick lately, and that didn't seem like much of a challenge to use them! ;)

It's a little hard to see, but I layered a strip of white cut out with the S4-239 Classic Scalloped Border Petites onto the MMW paper, then adhered the circle.
I stamped the ring and then covered it with stickles for a little more added blingage, then tied it on with some silver cord.  

The stamps are Unity's Soirees and Such, the paper is MME, and the dies are Spellbinders™
