I had a lot of fun creating this card - it is for Card Design Class next week.  One of the ladies asked about Steampunk and I thought I would create something along that line...

I have tried to keep to the 'Edwardian with a modern twist' style and used  a couple of digi images that I have.  They have been coloured using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Markers.

All sponging has been done using  IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento - Desert Sand and Toffee and IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™.  The bling is from Want2Scrap© - 72 Count - Brown Rhinestones - Self Adhesive

I have used the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine
to cut the A2 Distressed Edges Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Card Creator, Sprightly Sprockets 
 Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities and Grommet Tags Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities.  The background is embossed using the Creative Cogs Spellbinders™ 3D M-Bossabilities™ folders


 This card is for the following challenges: 
Inklings and Yarns - Always Anything Goes 
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Sentiment
LEJ Designs - Emboss It
