Steampunk Birthday

Hi Folks
Well it seems to have been a long week at work.  Thank goodness it is Friday and as if by magic it feels like I am getting a cold too.  Been running hot and cold all day and feel very sniffly.  Gonna dose myself up before bed tonight and hope I can shrug it off.

Today I am sharing a card that I made for my Mum's birthday a couple of weeks ago.  She is into cardmaking too so I always try and come up with something a bit different for her.


The images and papers are from the Steampunk Emporium CD from Kraftyhands.  I did all the matting onto black cardstock.  The corner pieces and the cogs are wooden laser cuts from Hobbycutz.  I did some embossing on them with metallic copper embossing powder and also added some mica powders.  The flowers are all metal and I added some black ribbon to two of the corners.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I love reading all your comments.
