Gearing Up!

It's a new challenge over at Digi Choosday and we are sharing New/New Year ideas this week!  Our Challenges are always Anything Goes for all of your wonderful entries!  

I chose to go with a male New Year's Card for my son!  I used a striped background from Octavia and the gears from Winnie Wonderland Steampunk Cogs and Wheels and the  Winnie Wonderland Steampunk Cogs/Wheels.  

The first digi is a layout of all the cogs and wheels.  I copic colored the ones on the bottom layer of the image.  Then I used the second digi which has the wheels and cogs separated to ink them and do some embossing.  I put them on 3-D foam to make them different heights.  I added a few black gems, 3 metal brads, and some twine.  

I'm pretty sure my son is going to love this card!  

Be sure to head over to Digi Choosday and check out the amazing projects from our team!  Then come share what you are crafting; we'd love to see it!  Remember, when you visit the Digi Choosday Site to pick up your discount code to Polkadoodles; it's good all day today....Tuesday!  It's a great way to pick up those digi's you've had your eye on!  While you're there, you might want to sign up for the Newsletter so you never miss out on special events!
