Steampunk Annie & a CARDS blog challenge...

Ok.  It's not Halloweenie OR creepy, but I'm sharing anyway :)

Today I wanted to share a mini-card... the challenge came from the CARDS blog.  Just click the link to find out the details :)


I love mini-cards... they do not have a lot of 'real estate' with which to work, so the challenge comes from trying to foof up a pretty small canvas :)  I worked with one of the new Steampunk Gang digis from Simply Betty Stamps... LOVE them!  She commissioned a new artist that has such a wonderful style.


I chose salmon, olive & mustard as a color palette, which I think compliments the image very well.  I added lace & velvet trims along with the metal elements to add to the whole vintage steampunk genre.
I packed this little 3x3 card with quite a bit of punch, no?
