The East Wind Challenge #52 Steampunk, Industrial or Metal

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge at The East Wind. Yep you read that right. My DT post! I am officially a new member of The East Wind DT and I am so excited to be on this fabulous team. I have loved these images for ages and didn't dare apply for the DT call last time they had one. Luckily for me Bonnie and Unky both loved my card that I made recently and invited me to join the rest of the utterly talented team. Just hope I do them justice!

Anyway onto my first project! I am using the gorgeous Aurora Just Face which is also the newsletter freebie image this month, so if you haven't already signed up for it, why not? Head on over to The East Wind Challenge blog and find out how to sign up for it so you don't miss out on the monthly freebies!

The challenge this month is to create something steampunk or industrial or use some metal somewhere on your project. I have to admit I went for the same colour scheme nearly as my last East Wind steampunk project, but I do love this combo and it works so well I think.
