Steampunk Dragonfly - Ching Chou Kuik - Fussy and Fancy DT

Good morning again. And now for something completely different to my normal cards.  I coloured up this digi 'Steampunk Dragonfly' from Ching Chou Kuik a while ago, and waited to use it for a DT card. I thought this weeks challenge at Fussy and Fancy  was perfect for it

She is fussy cut and added to some Graphic 45 card.  The layers are TH metalic card in  copper.  Yes ................. I actually cut into 2 treasured card packs :)

I added a Cheery Lynn border and some sprockets from SB.  I bought a pack of mixed metallic elements (I think from The Works) and made the little 'flowers'. The sentiment is a MB die with the bottom loops removed. 

The dragonfly, clocks and corners are from 'Live and Love Crafts', and they are our sponsor this week.  Sandy is offering a £10 voucher to the winner.

A close up, I added glossy accents to her goggles and black aurora borealis pearls to the centres of the cogs.

this one shows the copper card better than the straight one

This is the inside of the card where I have added a Penny Black sentiment.

Wait till you see what my other teamies have made for you inspiration this week, totally amazing cards for your inspiration, and you can find them here, and of course full details are available on their blogs.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog
