Steam Punk or Mechanical

Hi everyone. I'm so late with my DT Card today! It's so so hot here and makes me feel so tired, so straight after work today I just had a nap and then it was already time to prepare dinner and go for my Bokwa class!! Well, it's most days that I've been doing this recently  :( it's too hot to do anything at all! Anyway, better get on to my DT card now which I did for the new challenge that started today at

The theme for this week is
STEAM PUNK or MECHANICAL

Not having ever done a steam punk themed card, and not being also my favourite theme, I of course opted for the mechanical theme.

The image that I used is from Fred She Said, which is another of the images that I had chose from my lucky win some time ago. This image immediately reminded me of my dad as he had a car just like this, but a different color... In fact I was going to color it the same color as his, but I wanted to use these nice car papers that I had, which I thought they were perfect to go with this image.

We have two sponsors this week
Marianne Design with this fantastic prize
  
 and
Visible Image with these gorgeous stamps as a prize.
  

I am entering my card in these challenges today.
Crafts and Me 139 - ANYTHING GOES
Simon Says Challenge - ANYTHING GOES


Thank you for looking
xx

What a great masculine card. May I post a link to it on my Manly Monday blog post? It is where I share masculine cards for my readers to look at for inspiration. Guy cards can be challenging. LMK. Thanks
