A few challenges inspired me to make this card.....
The background has been stamped with Mono-chromatic colours 
and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
This allowed me to spray with a light brown spray.
There are also brown and gold splats and the edges blended with distress inks.

I cut out three keys with a die and made my first shaker card.
I popped in different colours of seed beads, which I thought looked masculine.

The bottom right hand side has a die cut layered lock on it, 
which has been heat embossed with copper, which gives a vintage look to it.
I stamped a key, three times, with shades of brown onto shrink plastic, heated it
and attached them to some brown twine.
The size of the key shrank to fit the lock at the bottom right hand side..A happy accident.
The ends of the twine have heated embossing powder on them.
I finished off with some copper heated enamel at the bottom of the card.
