Add a little dazzle and Casual Friday's blog hop day 1

It's time for the Add a little dazzle and Casual Fridays stamps blog hop!
We are so excited to share some exciting projects with you today using this amazing line of stamps and dies combined with Add a little dazzle craft metal sheets.

My card for today is very clean and simple in appearance but it wasn't a quick make.
I wanted to use this casual vine fri dies but wanted it too look different so although it is just adhered onto the card, because the card panel is partially die cut the vine goes over the edge.
Once i had cut the card panel i cut one and a half of the vines from Black diamond craft metal sheet from add a little dazzle.
I used glossy accents to adhere the metal to the card.
I think someone asked me last week what adhesives i used, the answer is any.
 I use glossy accents, tombow, foam tape, sticky squares, double sided tape or my scotch atg anything you have to hand. 
Just don't get any wet glues on the coloured side as it can remove the colour.
I then stamped the sentiment from Breathe stamp set in archival black.
The panel was then mounted over a stripe of patterned paper.
