SteamPunk Revival

* The most common historical steampunk settings are the Victorian and Edwardian eras, though some in this "Victorian steampunk" category can go as early as the beginning of the Industrial Revolution  * Wikipedia.) Well the revival is on and no wonder! I got a great set of steampunk digis from The Octopode Factory a few weeks back and have been working on this card ever since. I will be doing a Tips & Tutorial on Button Pizzaz in January. I think sometime they themselves could use a little somethin' somethin' to say "I am button hear me"...hmmm, what would a button say if it could speak?
 OK onto my card using Steampunk Mabel:

Placing that button directly onto her face was a huge leap of faith for me & I love it!!!!
Do you want to know how I created these? Be sure to stop by Saturday Jan.15th for the "know how"!
Tomorrow is my baby Oscar's Birthday he'll be 6!!! So I will be very busy the next 24 hours but I haven't popped by too many blogs lately so I'll try to figure something out! Until then...
