Poised between the illusion of immortality and the fact of death

I have the honour of being one of the guest designers helping celebrate Left of Center’s 1st anniversary and here is the aptly Steampunk style card I made featuring one of the fabby sponsors images, Demented Beauty from The Stamping Chef.

All month long they have guest designers, challenges and fun with loads of great sponsors so be sure to check out the blog and join in the fun.

Now I’ve set myself a challenge for the year, which is to enter the Outlawz sketch challenge every week so my card follows their current sketch.  I did shift the bottom embellies over though, I just thought they looked better on the corner of the rectangle element and I also wanted to ensure you could still see the gorgeous G45 paper.

As I’ve finally coloured up this beauty from The Stamping Chef I’m entering her in their anything goes challenge.  I’m also linking this at the current challenge at Little Red Wagon which calls for dimension.  I’ve got a lot of that with my many layers that are 3D Zotted as well as my layered sticker embellie.
