Steampunk for anything but a card

Happy Sunday!
I gotta say I'm very excited for football season to finally be starting up again!
I can't wait for the weather to turn a little cooler so I can have all the windows open while we watch the games!

Oh that's right I'm not writing a sports blog!!
I have some yummmmmmmy steampunk goodness to share with you all today!
I rescently did an overhaul of my studio, a lot of purging, and a lot of organizing,
and I came across this picture frame that I got at the second hand store. 
I thought this would be a the perfect project for the Steampunk Challenge at Anything But A Card.

It was great to know exactly where all my metal goodies were,
 and plus I found some that were "lost."
Here is the finished project
And some close ups...

This little deck of cards is one of my most favorite purchases from a recent estate sale.
I added a little clip and the light bulb. 
I had also gotten a wonderful measuring tape at an estate sale,
so i clipped a little piece of it and added some cogs and a game spinner piece. 

Finally for the Inspire light bulb, 
This piece was completely see through, so i added a bit of scrap paper to the back,
and boom, a wonderful piece. 

I hope you all are inspired by what you're seeing, and don't forget that there is currently 
a Design Team call going on at Anything But a Card.   
I will say this is a wonderful group to work with, and there are always inspiring pieces!
If you like to make things other than cards please throw your hat in!
We would love to have you in the group!
