Wheels and cogs

Something very different for my final post today. Please scroll down for others. I love making girly cards but I also love making this type of card as it really gets you thinking when it comes to layout and embellishment. The main image ad sentiment are rubons from Michaels. I bought a sheet with about 6 on for $1. I used kraft card and Core'dinations to make this card along with We R Memory Keepers Travel Light papers. I've used some of that scrim again but this time used DI Vintage Photo on it as I didn't want it left white. Lots of tearing, distressing and sanding apart from 2 of the cogs which I heat embossed. I've used Tim Holtz clock die, on the edge steampunk die and metal cogs.
Challenges:
Pollycraft Check it out
Sarah Hurley Steampunk
The Crafty Pad Perfect pair (2 papers, 2 wheels, 2 metal cogs)
Te Paper Shelter For the boys
