Scary Metal

Today I'm sharing another card using Psychosis, an image from CSDesigns.

I used wrapping paper with a stripy design, tore it in strips and glued it to my card. I then distressed it a bit. The roses were rolled with metallic paper and I added some brads to complete the theme.



And here is a close-up of the roses:
Hope you like my card!

I'm entering my card in the following Challenges :
