Passion for Promarkers - Lace and Swirls Steampunk Style!!!

Hi all, wow I haven't been around since last Wednesday, this could be because Thursday evening I had enough of my craft room being a mess and spent then plus Friday, Saturday and Sunday doing my craft room, I have managed to get rid of 10 bags which will be going to my mate and nursery :-).  Anyway on Thursday I finished the below card, I had been meaning to post it since then but I couldn't even get to my desk lol.
I have so much visiting and blogging to do, I shall try and catch up with everybody tomorrow. I did my card for the current challenge over at Passion for Promarkers which is Lace and Swirls, I originally heat embossed swirls (close picture below) but didn't think you would see it very well so did a nice border with an embossing folder on metal.  The lace trim was sprayed with dylusions spray.

When I first bought this stamp it reminded me of the graphic 45 steampunk papers I had with the roses down the dress, so really wanted to have a go at a cute steampunk card :-), everything I used is below.

Right I shall be off, I have to work in the morning, so as I work mostly from home I really need to clear a space on my workdesk which is more like a craft sorting desk lol lol.  Thank you so much for visiting, and I will catch up with you all soon.  Hugs Kerry :-) xxx
