PPRS Monday

It's time for Prickley Pear Monday once again. My card today is sort of Vintage Steampunk, if there is such a thing. :-)
 D042 Scalloped Oval Nesting Die, D025 & D035 Steampunk Gears & Mini Gears Dies.
I love these die so much I'd like to put them on everything!
I added some vintage lace, ribbon, brads, Prima Flowers, pearls strip, and some Viva Deco liquid pearl in ivory, and of course I distressed my paper a bit. Just couldn't do without that! The flourish is from Cheery Lynn. I did use a bit of Copics for a touch of color on the floral oval.
that about does it for me today folks, so have a great day and thanks so much for stopping in.
Hugs, Maureen

  7. You are so good, Maureen! I love these earthy tones. The sponging on the flowers really makes them special. You worked a lot of design into this space and it all comes together beautifully!
