My lovely young friend emma keeps laughing at me cos i told her i'm too old for change . Just to prove i'm not really here's my first attempt at a steampunk card . Not exactly sure what one is but from others i've seen it looks to fit the bill. lol. It made a change from Cutesy images .

Backing papers , cogs and image are from crafty catz cd A touch of steampunk.

Charms from my stash.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges :

Vintage Illusions - men and machines
