Fussy and Fancy DT card.....Steampunk

Happy Friday everyone:) Yes another week has come to an end......I am feeling Christmas is creeping upon us very quickly!!! Doesn't help with the fact that summer seems to have forgotten us:(
So today I am here with a card that I have made for the new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge...the theme is 'Steampunk' hosted by the lovely Laila.  This is another card that I thought eeeeks how am I going to achieve this steampunk theme, but still within my style of loving lace pearls and bling?...Well after hoping around blogland I soon realised that there are lot's of ways that you can interpret this steampunk theme....and this is what I created:


  •  The image is Lacy Sunshine: Rosalind and I have coloured her in with copics.
  • The papers are Prima -Engraver as is the large flower in the right hand corner.
  • The cogs are Tim Holtz.
  • I have used frantage on the metal corner.
  • The blue background cogs are Spellbinder dies.
  • The blue roses and pink voile are from Live and Love crafts.
  • The small pearls and beige roses are from The Hobby House.
  • All of the other bits are from my crafty stash.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafty cardmakers - steampunk
Sparkles forum challenge - steampunk or vintage
