Here is my Steampunk inspired card.

The main image is the gorgeous Lavina Portrait from Simply B Stamps.  These steampunk stamps are going to be available from the store once they have made into the country from America.  You can contact Lisa to place your order and have one reserved for you when they arrive.  The other stamps from the collection are just as adorable and being on the SBS design team aswell, if you keep your eyes peeled you will be seeing a lot more of the stamps that the store will be stocking!!  
The other elements of this card consist of  'Fancy key charms' by Creative Expressions. (available in store or on line).  These have been attached using Tim Holtz idea-ology split pins.
I have also used the Tic-Toc stamp from Kaisercraft and a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp that I have also embossed using Wow bronze embossing powders.
And of course the weathered clock face die from Tim Holtz again.  I think this is a must have in any crafters collection!!
The papers are a selection of papers from my stash.

Well I hope you like the card, and don't forget to see what the other girls have done......
They have well and truly rocked this challenge!

Can't wait to see what you do.

Bye for now xxx
