1st Steampunk card

Hello there & thanks for stopping by my blog today x

I thought I would make a card out of my comfort zone!! BUT I actually enjoyed making it. Just hoping I have used the right sort of colours!!

I did want to make just a card front (like Sue demonstrating spellbinders dies on Create & Craft). When she said
 " why waste good card", I thought she was right.

I did end up buying the big bundle of Spellbinder's dies!! with hubby's permission (honestly). Hopefully it arrives today.

Anyway, did the card front BUT only forgot how Sue did the easel bit!! SOOO ended up doing a proper card Lol.

Anyway here it is ...........


Inside to complement the front
