Sarah Hurley Challenge ~ Steampunk

Hi everyone!

Thank you for all your lovely messages and well wishes for my Mum...I've passed them on and I think she was really chuffed, she feels quite famous!! lol. She's in bed at the moment and not feeling too good but I'm doing my best Florence Nightingale act and looking after her.

In the meantime, it's time for another challenge over at the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog. This fortnight's theme was set by the lovely Claire and is all about STEAMPUNK. So, if you head on over there, you can get all the challenge details and be inspired by the fab makes from the team...including the following card from moi, which I hope you like!!
This card was made using papers and elements from Sarah's brand new Steampunk CD, which is available here. I added an embossed panel of Core'dinations cardstock and then some Gadget Gears which I die cut from chipboard and embossed with embossing powder to give a vintage look. I made the flower using some more of Sarah's papers and the Tattered Floral Die and then added the bottle top centre.

So, I really hope you will join us for this challenge and can't wait to see all your makes. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my creation and I'm coming round right now, to see all your blogs and say hello!!

Bye for now and see you soon!
Love Emma xxx


  1. Gorgeous card Emma, love the flower and tickets and wonderful colours. Definitely a busy time at the moment lol. Just finishing samples for Sheena's show on Sunday, phew I'm shattered lol. Tracy x

  2. Oh Emma this is stunning what a great card, Hope your Mum is better soon, Love Hazelxo

  3. Gorgeous, love the layers and the soft tones to it. So often I see really dark SP versions so this one is wonderful! Glad mum doing ok. Zo xx

  4. I had missed your previous post, but I hope your Mum is now feeling very much better. I have to be hones that I am not keen on SteamPunk (my daughter says it is my age), but it does not stop me from appreciating the hard work that goes into producing such a stunning card. Thank you for your visit and your lovely comments again. I am glad to find someone else who is keen on watching the birdlife. I could spend the whole day watching their antics. I will post my Clarity news on Sunday after the present is delivered. Have a good week and look after yourself and your Mum. xx Maggie

  5. Fabulous creation Emma! I love the way you can turn your hand to so many different themes and styles and produce such consistently good designs.

    Hope your mum is soon on the mend.

  6. Just Fabulous! Love the colour palette and that gorgeous flower :)xx
