Steampunk Cutie

Good afternoon all.

I can't wait until this week is over.  I have so much to catch up on - the after effect of the summer hols I suppose lol.

I did get a card done though and here it is...

I have never done Steampunk before so this is my first attempt.  I really enjoyed making this.  I used a brown and grey colour combination which I wasn't sure would work but luckily it did.  I won the cute image from Lacy Sunshine and you can find her here.
The cogs (which I love) were a birthday gift.  They are a die set from Do Crafts.  The papers and the sentiment are old from a steampunk CD, Papermania.
