Challenge #105 at Craft Your Passion

Hello my fellow bloggers! We had an awesome Easter and my brother-in-law joined Hubby and I for Easter dinner. I would like to start by saying that it was fabulous which is due to the awesome cooking of my favorite Chef, Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. My twice baked potatoes were a hit. I also made a 10 lb. baked Ham, roasted asparagus and Ree’s Crème Brulee from this season’s Pioneer Woman on Food Network. I love Crème Brulee but never had to nerve to make my own but, because I love Ree and all her country living which includes her awesome recipes I had to try it. With that I will just say that there were only happy faces at  dinner last night. I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday!

Our new challenge is up at Craft Your Passion and this week our theme is “Shaped Cards.” That means no Rectangular or Square cards are allowed. I can’t wait to see what you all create. So to get you inspired the CYP DT has lots of ideas; you can visit them here. So without further ado our sponsor this week is Kenny K.
For my shaped card this week I used  a gear/circle shape that I created in Adobe Illustrator with a little inspiration from none other than Google search. There are so many things you can search on. Just type in a question, phrase or word and it will find a resource or an answer. I found a multitude of images with Steampunk inspiration for my card on Google.
I used BoBunny Timepiece collection for my DPs and Bazzill cardstock with a gear cut by hand (yes, I do that occasionally) and embossed with my Cuttlebug. Then I used Brushed Corduroy to distress the embossing and make it really stand out. I used the gear to create a circle easel card to display my gorgeous Val Ventura digi stamp.
Wow, did she take forever to complete! I love these stamps and they are fun to color but it took me 2 hours to color her with planning and testing.

These are the Copics I used to color Val Ventura, my new Steampunk baby!

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times - Va Va Voom

Thanks for letting me share my CYP card with you this week!
