Steampunk Card for a Betweenager!

Happy Saturday Everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
This is the card I made for my granddaughter's tenth birthday this week.

I spotted the CD, Steampunk - The Next Generation, which the toppers and papers came from during a Jem's Design's demonstration on C&C TV and thought it would be just perfect for creating cards for my granddaughters who are all at what I think of as the difficult stage - the betweenagers!
Because everything is in JPG format I was easily able to import the 'paper' image into a graphics programme and create panels for the inside of the card.

Materials used: 
  • pink cardstock cut to form a 5.5" square card base; 
  • black cardstock for matting and layering; 
  • Jem's Design, Steampunk - The Next Generation CD; 
  • MS Publisher programme to create inside panels; 
  • Spellbinder ribbon tag die; 
  • Ladybug Crafts It's Only Words 2 stamp collection for sentiment; 
  • Penny Black Birthday Wish stamp (inside);
  • ribbon, roses, gems and stickles for embellishments.
I'd like to submit this card to the following challenges:

Left of Center Challenge 9: Use a Sentiment on the Front and/or LOC theme!

Right, off to watch the tennis now!

Take care everyone and happy crafting,
