Stamp Simply Hard Rock Cafe Challenge

For Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge today we are thinking *hard rocks* and we do not mean music or a cafe! We are thinking metals and stones as added elements for our projects. It can be metallic pens, metallic papers, rhinestones. Use gold, silver, copper, rubies, emeralds, pearls, etc. type beauties as added embellishments! Have FUN!
How about metal trimmed tags turned into presents? Buttons and pearls add to the hard rocks! Talk about an easy peasy way to get different sized squares in a jiffy! I used my new Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather paper for the gift paper! I stamped a gift tag using the "to" from Classic Christmas set and added that to the largest gift. I just can't get enough of the holiday red ribbon! The ever slight glitter edging on the sheer ribbon is just pure goodness to my eyes! LOVE it! Ribbon & string is found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store along with the stamp set, Cosmo paper, adhesive pearls, and Spellbinders dies. Now it's your turn to add some hard rocks to your creation! If you upload your creation to a public forum, please use keyword161 and remember, upload to Sharon's Mr Linky over at her blog. I cannot thank you enough for stopping by today! I so appreciate your visits and comments. Take good care! Check the Hard Rock Cafe creations our designers have to share this week! Sharon Johnson, No Time To Stamp?
