Playing with Steampunk

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  Well, it has been an exciting week for me.  If you have seen my earlier posts this week hubby surprised me on Wednesday by buying me a new car.  Quite unexpected and a lovely surprise.  Can't wait to pick it up sometime next week.  

Tonight I would like to share a card that I made to enter the Imagination Crafts design team call in December.  I was delighted when I got an email from Linda to say that I had been successful and was staying on the team.  Looking forward to working with my new teamies and with the fabulous products available at Imagination Crafts.

The central image has been done using Black Stars sparkle medium and the Cameo Cog stencil on glossy red card.  Once dry the image was matted onto black cardstock and a few little gems added.  The background was created using distress ink through the Time and Motion stencil.  For embellishments I added some ribbon and flowers.  The flowers are metal and fitted in with the steampunk theme.  I did add some sparkle detail to the centre of the flowers.  The sentiment is from LOTV.
