Precious Metals for The Stampman challenge

Evening Everyone, and welcome to a much earlier post from me than usual :O)
Didn't our Girls do well with their Gold medals yesterday?
With that in mind, how appropriate then that our new challenge from Angela over at The Stampman should be
Precious Medals/Metals - Olympics - Gold/Silver/Bronze.

In honour of all our absolutely amazing Olympians we are asking that your project feature some type of metal.
As usual there is a £10 voucher to spend at The Stampman online store up for grabs.
The circular panel at the centre of my card has been stamped and embossed using Hero Arts CG288 Leaf Clusters, versamark ink and Gold, Silver and Copper embossing powder.
I sponged the panel with a combination of Distress inks - Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky and Scattered Straw, before stamping the leaves again using the distress inks.
The background papers are from my stash and I have used the same stamps and more gold embossing powder on them.
I also cut some circles from the same background paper using my Circular Nestabilities and added a sentiment from the Woodware JGCL 560 Just to Say set.
The finishing touches have been added with Woodware Dotty Ribbon and Gold Nailheads as well as a few timy black dots using my Micron pen.
Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team have come up with and share the love with our newest members  
Zoe Sanderson and Tony Robson.
I have to go and remake a card now. You see even DT members don't read the challenges properly sometime, or is it just that I got carried away and forgot that there was a colour element. Either way my craft room is calling lol.
Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting.
