SSD Steampunk challenge #4

Wow, I'm cutting it fine again today for the fourth and final challenge over at the Sassy Studio Designs progressive challenge.
      Our last freebie we received for completing challenge #3 was Steampunk Vivian and our challenge - Anything Goes!! So I decided to use all the elements that we had to include in the last three challenges!! I have thoroughly enjoyed creating steampunk and vintage cards so I will probably create more of these in the near future!!
      So I won't keep you anymore.. here is my card!!

I used The Sweet Stop Sketch but as you an see I have skewed the sketch a bit but all the elements are there with some added extras!! I coloured Steampunk Vivian, umbrella, gears and flying padlocks in with Tria markers and I added some glitter and shimmer chalks to give it a bit of sparkle (but as always, the camera didn't capture the sparkle). I inked the lace with black ink and also inked over the timeless sentiment which was a freebie over at the SSD PCP page! The papers are Graphic 45 again and I created the clock paper which is the base of the card!!! The umbrella and flying padlocks are from KL dezign but like I said the  other day I can't seem to find the blog!! There are quite a few layers to this card but I forgot to take a photo so you could see and I've now sold the card so can't show you (opps :))
I have been so happy with how my cards have turned out for this fun progressive challenge but I think I've got a bit better as the challenge went along and I absolutely love this card and clearly so did my friend as she just bought it!!!

Thanks to all the SSD DT for the freebies and the inspiration  for this progressive challenge and congrats for reaching 500 followers on PCP!
