Get Creative Challenge 5 - 1 Ribbon, 2 Papers & 3 Brads - Lacy Sunshine

Welcome back to my blog after the Christmas break and to get into the swing of things, here's my last DT card for 2014.

Get Creative

This fortnights challenge is a 1, 2, 3. Use 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 brads. All this and using a fabby image provided by the wonderfully talented 

Lacy Sunshine

After creating quite a few Christmas themed cards in the run up to the big event, it's been nice to do something a little different. For this card I've gone down the Steampunk route, love the idea of it, but I'm still learning with the colour combinations and good layouts for this style.
Hope you like.

I've coloured this solely with Spectrum Noir pencils, think I need a little more practise to make the colours 'pop' a bit more, but I do like the aspect and light accents on it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Digi Choosday Challenge 50 - Last Minute Christmas

So with this weeks theme being last minute Christmas, I thought I'd do just that, make my card a the very last minute. It WAS out of choice! So with this in mind, I chose to use one of Nikky's design sheets from Festive Holibobs. I love these design sheets, they are great for either a quick card or if you're not that confident yet with layouts. With a few additions of buttons and a bit of backing card, I love how it's turned out.
