GDT card for Amber's craft & stuff 'Patterned papers'

Well good morning all, here is my Guest design crard for the 'Patterned papers' challenge at Amber's craft & stuff.  Such a great honour to be asked to be a guest designer so thank you Amber, and I hope you all like my card :o)

The Design papers used for this card are from the stitchy bear store called  'Steampunk papers'

The image is called 'Tattoo's and feathers' and is a digi stamp by Delicious doodles. Also available at the store.  I have cut her out with a Nellie Snellen multiframe die and inked with green around the edge, then heat embossed some bronze around the outside edge and added some mini gems to alternate scallops.  She has been coloured with pro markers.

The cogs are another digi stamp from delicious doodles that i have cut out using scissors and a craft knife, and then heat embossed with the same bronze powder, I added some gems to the centres

The metallic leaves and flowers are from my stash, and I have added gems to the centre of the flowers.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges   Embossing, heat or dry

Thanks for stopping by

This is stunning work Nikki, I love the way you've done the cogs and the whole balance of the card. Our challenge at Crafty Ann's is actually dry embossing/debossing and not heat embossing, but thank you for giving us the opportunity to come and see your lovely work, I hope we'll see you again for the new challenge tomorrow.
