Momento Mori - Simply Betty

In honor of the Steampunk week extravangaza over at Simply Betty Fan group I made a little steampunk card as well!  I hope that you will enjoy it!  You can get some great inspiration as well as prizes in the great hop.

To make this I used the great image Momento Mori.  I just think this image is sooo elegant.

I used some of my favorite steampunk paper for this it's a recollection pack.  I distressed all the edges with my Tim holtz distresser.  I used some new metal accent that I got on sale they are Martha Stewart embellishments.  I used my distressed small and large rectangles.  And that's it!

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.  The sentiment is from Ginger's house and I thought it was just perfect with this image!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Crafters cafe blog challenge - Lots of layers
  2. Left of center challenges - Use your dies - and well it's steampunk :)  Got to love that too...
  3. Fresh brewed designs - 1 image plus one sentiment
That's it for today.  Hope you have a great day.  Here it's not snowing FINALLY but it's chilly :/
