Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all doing today?

Looking forward to a weekend of celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary which is on Monday.
I can't believe where the years have gone!

Do you struggle making male card? These papers and ephemera are ideal for male cards.

A new card using my Steampunked papers and ephemera from my Etsy Store

Step by Step

1. A5 white base card.
2. Matted and layered black card which has been distressed with scissors.
3. The next layer is the polka dot paper from Steampunked which I have distressed with scissors and DI ground espresso.
4. The topper has also been distressed with scissors and distress ink then matted and layered onto black card.
5. To finish off I added a couple of sprocket dies in black card and cut the pocket watch from one of the Steampunked papers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

The Crafty Addicts #33 - Anything Goes
TTCRD - Always Anything Goes
Unstampabelles #65 - AG Something New (My new papers)
A bit more time to Craft #37 - Anything Goes
Eclectic Ellapu - Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!
