Steampunk Butterfly from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, I hope you're enjoying a lovely Christmas break, I'm at work today booooooo hoooooo! But I'm not too downhearted as after today I've not a week off which I'm planning on spending in my craftroom lol. Anyway as a change from Christmas projects my card share today is another sample featuring the gorgeous Steampunk Butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

The background was created with the cogs stamp from the set over a background made with Seedless preserves and broken china distress inks. I stamped and embossed the keys with gold EP and added some gold ribbon and a butterfly charm. The focal image was made using the same inks on glossy card stock, again stamping and embossing with gold EP. To finish off I've added some wire antanna and edges the card with a gold krylon pen.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Moments: embossing
Divas by Design: anything goes
Flutter by  Wednesdays: Open challenge with butterfly or fairy
Hiding in my craft room: anything but Christmas
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

well as usual at this time of morning, i'm rushing around getting ready for work so I'd better get myself organised for the day ahead. Before I go though, do pop over to the Chocolate Baroque DT blog as there are some gorgeous new stamps released today!!
Thanks for popping by today,
