my first steampunk card !

Hi Everyone hope that you are all well  just want to say a HUGE thanks again for all the lovely comments that have been left on my cards , its very much appeciated and giving me the confidence to try new things hence todays post
so here it is and i hope that you like it !

The card

The topper

heres how i made it
I used an A5 card blank and inked the edges using vintage photo distress ink applied with a make up sponge , next i took backing paper from my Tinkering With Steampunk cd rom and lightly inked it the same as above . I then added a piece of lace from my stash also lightly inked and attatched that and a border and paper ribbon accross the top left hand side of the backing paper at an angle .
I then cut out the topper twice , used one topper to decoupage and used a gold gel pen to highlight in places and give it a little shimmer ( hard to see in the pic ) .
I attatched all this to the card blank using double sided tape and used gold peel offs to border it all .
I then added the " may all your wishes come true " sentiment that was part of a gorgeous parcel of goodies given to me by the lovely Debbi Taylor .
and finished it all by adding card candi and mat bronze sequins from my stash .
The backing paper , topper and border strip were all taken from my Tinkering With Steampunk rom

I hope that you like todays make , thanks for stopping by !
