Where are you going???

When I read the I ♥ Promarkers challenge this week I sat and thought about it, and thought about it - until finally the penny dropped.  The challenge is:

Challenge #82 Metal embellishment or charm
First of all Charms are out as I don't have any... so that leaves Metal embellishments (thinking cap on!) I then reaslised the obvious answer - Brads!!!!

Why did it take so long to think of such a easy solution???

A few weeks ago I found an example in one of the Card Making Magazines (I can't remember which one L) of card that used maps from an out of date map book.  A couple of weeks ago I brough a new map book to keep in the car (my old was was dated 2009 - so I DID need a new one J) the old map book found its way up to my craft corner - just in case it could be recycled.

After colouring in a Little Claires Desigins Digital stamp of a car I used a peice of Map for a matt, along with 3 brads I have a finished card.

I was amazed at how simple it was to create as well as how go it looks.
