Playing with metal and WIR Winner!

When I saw that today's SCS challenge was to incorporate a soda can, I was intrigued. Then I checked out the gallery and saw that people were using their die cutting machine to cut out different shapes. How cool is that? I was a little worried that it might be difficult to cut through the can but it really wasn't. I took a sharp knife to poke through the can and then used my kitchen scissors to cut the rest out.
For Kylie's birthday I got her a Cuttlekids so that she can make cards with mommy. We haven't had the chance to use it yet but I thought that I would try out some of her cute flower dies. You know, to make sure they work ;). I colored them with my Copic markers and attached them to the card using dimensionals. The sentiment is from Tweeterpated and the flower is from Cupcake Mix & Match.

I'm going to give this card to one of my favorite cousins who turns 22 today. On the inside I'm going to write "The flower on the front is made of metal so that you can use this card as a weapon in case of emergencies" lol!
