Challenge #191 at SOS is Not so Heavy Metal

Looking for my Clear it Out Post scroll down or click HERE.
Shopping Our Stash challenge 191 is Not so Heavy Metal and we want you to use your oldest metal embellishments on your project. I have no idea how old my clips and brads are but I would venture a guess at least 5 years old for the clips and longer for the brads and they match. Here is what I came up with…..
The stamp I used is from House Mouse Designs
Lots of stash used on this card, the paper is over 5 years old and the lace I have no idea when I bought it but think it was a yard sale find. I have no idea what to call this fold but I used the clips to attach the two sides of the card together. Here is a closer look at the metal stash.
Now on to the rest of the card and the measurements are under tutorials.
The inside of the card.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #189 Spring is in the Air or optional Anything Goes.
Gruffies and Guests Anything Goes with the option of  Love is all Around.
Thanks for visiting today and dig out your oldest metal and join in the fun at Shopping Our Stash.
