Bombshell March Blog Hop - Metallica-rt 3/31/10

HELLO !!
Shannon, Thank you for the opportunity to be Blog Hop Captain.
Ms. Inky did an awesome job, sorry to see her go!
Welcome to the March Bombshell Blog Hop.  The theme is METAL 
Try using metals in your project.  
Make something on metal, metal accents, metal embellishments, or even "Metal" music...
Your choice just tell us how it fits with the theme.
I have two projects.  With a Dad that loves old cars...
I had to take the opportunity to make him a couple of things for his birthday this month.

This frame is to put a picture of my girls from a car show we went to.



I started with a $1 wooden frame. 
I used silver metallic cardstock and embossed it using my Cuttlebug.
I cut strips and "mitered" the edges.  Then I added a stamped Bombshell image. 
The car is from the Speed Shop set.
I added some green "punchinella" from Gauche Alchemy..
the word and definition of "car" from a vintage dictionary (inked with Tim Holtz distressing ink)..
a couple of cool washers...
and voila....cool Dad present.
Next is his card.

The background was made with a Cuttlebug folder.
The car was stamped on foil tape with Staz-on (love that almond smell)
Then some color was added with Copics.
There are three metal brads at the top and green foil paper behind the Happy Birthday.

Now, how do you win this great prize package below....
