It's Magic...

...no, not Magic Mike, Halloween Magic,  one of the newest images from Stampendous.  I really like this image because it can be used for parties, Mardi Gras and other fun occasions, not just Halloween!  As you know, this is Release Week for Stampendous and we've been sharing new images all week long.  Tomorrow is the last day to celebrate and we are having a huge blog hop, you don't want to miss this!



Getting back to my card, I used Bazzill for the base, We R Memory Keepers for the patterned papers, and Neenah for my image that I colored with Copics.  Once I got all my layers put together I added some  Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel over some cool little gears I found in the bead section of Michael's.  Yep, the bead section!  Who would have thunk it!?  Anyway, that was my cool Steampunk Fran•táge addition to the card!
