Steampunk card

Good Evening, Everyone

I made this card for the steampunk challenge over at
 Craftymess Facebook Group

I have managed to enter one or two of their regular fun challenges but 
this time I decided to blog it as well. 

I used an 8 x 8 scalloped card bland and inked the edges
the layers are cooredinations embossed with 
cogs (layer one)
winged dress form (top layer)
These have been sanded and inked and edges distressed.

I used one of my bows and appended little bolts and metal wings to the bow. 
I added cogs to two corners.

Finally I added a beautiful little stick pin by

Lindsay E Jolly

and I hate to use these! I have attached them to cards
several times and always take them back off!
They are just to good to use! 
At the end up I decided that I would use one!
