Everyone wins!

Got your attention, didn't I?
You won't believe this.  June of Dezinaworld is having a challenge where everyone who enters gets a prize.
Isn't that amazing?  She has fun chalenges each week, but this is like an early Christmas present!  Here is what I've put together.

K, here's the story behind this little creation.  First, we were asked to use one of Dezinaworld's images.  Easy.  I have the coolest Steampunk Collage sheet that I got from her shop.  If you look closely (maybe click on it for help with the old eyes), you'll see that the "frame" is made of gears-THAT is one of hers.  I rubbed it with some metallic paint and embossed it with my cuttlebug and the "dice" folder.
The background paper is Hambly, the hearts, her wings, and the journalling frame are Bisous.  If all of the scrapbook supply stores disappeared tomorrow, and all that was left was Bisous, I'd could manage.  I love their stuff.
I think the puppy is Basic Grey.  I crackled the gentleman's heart, put a little stickles in her hair, crackled the gears on both their hats (also both by Dezinaworld) and added a few other assorted goodies which I can't identify.  Finishing touch? Enamel Accents.

 This started off as a birthday card for my daughter's BF.  I made the two individuals on it with an assortment of Internet images.  The bodies are from some very old gaslamp ads, the feet and legs are from Crowabout Studio B. Their arms are by  Freubel-Art.

The man's face is (who else?) Edgar Allan Poe and the woman's face is from a painting by one of my favourite artists, Franz Xavier Winterhalter .

This post took me longer to do than the card did!
At any rate, I still don't have a birthday card for my daughter's beau.  Why not?  Cus it's pink.
It can't be pink.  It has to be green, like the colour of his favourite football team.
Green.  Football.  I've got my work cut out for me today.
You've her me speak of it before.
You have until December 4th to link up.
Better get movin!
