FM187 Weather Inspired with Metal Embellishment

I'm super exicted to be hosting this weeks Friday Mashup challenge. 

With winter in full swing in Calgary, Alberta, Canada I have been thinking a lot about weather. So this week let the weather you are currently experiencing or would like to be having inspire you to create your project. If your up for mashing up the challenge you can add in a metal embellishment.

Here's your challenge this week at The Friday Mashup:

1. Create a project using "a Metal Embellishment (Staple, Brad, Grommet etc.)". 
2. Create a project using "Weather as your Inspiration" think Storms, Winter, Clouds, Rain, Sun, Warm Sandy Beaches. 

3. or Mash it Up! and create a "Weather inspired project with a Metal Embellishment".

I'm really sad with how my photographs turned out because in person my banner is STUNNING!
There is lots of sparkle. I spritzed everything with smootch spritz giving everything extra sparkle. Theres added texture to the banner by using my Marker Spritzer with Lost Lagoon marker.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the banner and lettering. I love my cameo because it works with MDS SVG files. This means I pulled over my banner punch into the Silhouette Software to cut out the banners.
