Just for You

This is a card dedicated to all my lovely Blog followers and Facebook followers.  Yes this week certainly hasn't been easy and I never imagined come nearly Friday not to be able to open my mouth to eat/drink and not wanting to talk but I'll get there.  I've had the same surgery twice before but this time for some reason I am slower to recover.  My husband has been off all week on leave so he's had a very peaceful week!!

My crafty friend Lozzy sent me a card recently with this gorgeous character on.  I'd seen this image from La-La Land Crafts some weeks before so it was ironic.  Well I had to just have it myself - along with a few others - to cheer me up.

This character is called "Steampunk Marci" and she is available from La-La land Crafts.  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  Around the edge of the image I have used a Visible Image cogs die from their wonderful set called "Time After Time" and then used a black Pan Pastel for the background.  To add a bit of shine around the edge I have used my gold Pan Pastel.  I have added some Glossy Accents to her goggles.
For my backing papers I have used a paper from a newly released sent from Donna at Bearly Mine Designs.  I have used a paper from Mixed Media 2 set but also a Mixed Media set has been released as well.  They are both FANTASTIC sets and come with thirty 6x6 papers in each set for £4.50.  That is wonderful value.

With such a wonderful backing paper I didn't really need to add much apart from some plain cardstock, twine/fibres, various die-cut cogs held on with brads, sentiment from a Debbi Moore CD, gems and finally a sentiment from the Visible Image "Time After Time" stamp set which says "learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow".

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Love this card! The image is so sweet and I really like the gears around the edge of the image itself as well as the 3D ones.The pan pastel creates a wonderful backdrop as well as the great paper selection. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/Add a brad or eyelet challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. I hope we see you again soon.
