Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge

It's April!!! Spring is here!! That makes me think of bright, sunshine-filled days!! What's bright and shiny?? Metallics!! What can you find that's shiny metallic to use on your challenge this week?? Brads, Metallic Paper, Eyelets, Embellies??? Let your creativity "shine"!!!!
Metallic elements can really spruce up a card! Brads, inks, rhinestones, or hardware...bring it ALL out for this week's Sketch and Product Challenge!

Here's the sketch:
And here's my sample:
I used eyelet brads as my main metallic, but I also painted the hearts with shimmerz. For the cake, I "colored" the layers with my versamarker and embossed it with several layers of chocolate embossing powder for another metallic look. The icing is liquid applique. The inside sentiment reads "Hooray! it's your day".
So, do you want to play along? Here are the details:
**Use the sketch provided along with anything METALLIC!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC018.
**Post a comment with a link to your card on the appropriate post on Mandy's blog by Sunday, April 5, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).
