GC110: Gears, Cogs, and Watch Bits

Time for another fun challenge from Gingersnap Creations, and this time we're going steampunk with GC110: Gears, Cogs and Watch Bits!  My collage images come from our sponsor this month, Dezinaworld.  I must say, these collage sheets were a joy to work with - beautiful quality, and totally fun images.  I used the Steampunk 4 collage sheet for my card, and by simply resizing a few of the images, I was able to construct this lovely couple, who are literally made for each other!  I added some cogs and gears (some in strategic places, LOL!!!), and some gear and pocket watch stamped images in the background.  As I was looking through my pages of vintage text for some words I could use, I came across this phrase (it's from Little Women) and decided to use it "as is".  Sort of made me think of two people suddenly realizing that they are perfect for each other, as this odd couple certainly is.  I think this would make a fun and funky anniversary card (or even a wedding card for the truly progressive, hee hee).

If you'd like to play along, simply link up your creation over at Gingersnap Creations by August 7, 2011.  One randomly selected qualifying entry will win a voucher for use in the Dezinaworld store worth $20.00 US, and as always, 10 Ginger Gems will also be named.

Ok, I just realized where one of the strategic placed pieces was applied! Maybe it is just me! This progressive couple is very cool and so is their creator! This would make a wonderful anniversary card! I just added your BC to my sidebar, which I thought I had done for you!
