A First For A Steampunk Theme

 I've been feeling the need for quite some time to try a little 'steampunk' themed cards, so whilst I was at a recent craft fair I was inspired by the lady next to me ( Helen) who was into steampunk and made fab photo frames and jewellery and it set me off. So as it was her birthday on the Monday I decided to try out my first 'steampunk' card, and here it is:
I hope she liked it. I swopped a Christmas Tree Book for some vintage watch faces, springs, cogs etc with her and now I dont want to use them....lol - got stacks of paper because I dont want to use them - well they are all my favourites! So inspired by this I bought a CD full of images, backing paper etc so expect to see some more of this theme. I'm entering this card into the following challenge:
The Crafty Pad - Anything but Christmas
I've still got one more very important Christmas card to make - watch this space!
