The Paper Shelter Challenge #176 Pearls

Good afternoon and welcome to my post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is to use pearls - how easy is that?! Now I would usually use pearls with a really girly image, but I fancied a change today and whilst I have use a girly image, she's not a pretty in pink, sweet and innocent one!

I used the fabulous steampunk inspired It's Tea Time and attempted to do a steampunk-ish card. I love the idea of steampunk, but it's not one that comes naturally to me, so I just keep on practising. Maybe one day I'll crack it! Not sure what is missing, but there's something, so leave me a comment telling me!
