1st Attempt At Steampunk For Zoe's birthday

Hello everyone well check me out not a pastel colour in sight and i think i went distress ink crazy lol.I made this card for Zoe at make it crafty as its her birthday.Well as some of my regulars know this is my very 1st try at steampunk and this image i adore so i hope there will be more to come.The image is from Krista's store creator of Simply Sassy I am so pleased I can get her images this way as its alot more affordable for me.The papers came wth a glimmer mist kit but were very pale so i have distressed them all with Antique Linen and Vintage photo.The image has been coloured with promarkers and the nesties used are scallop oval and ovals.The chipboard gears I heat embossed well triple embossed and they are from Make it Crafty and then I have finished with silver metallic card candy.
Would love to know what you think.
