Sparkles Monthly 'Steampunk or Vintage' Challenge

Good afternoon all, after the last couple of days being so so hot today has been cool in comparison and is even raining now boo hoo, bring back the sunshine.

Today I have for you a card I made for the Sparkles Monthly Challenge which should have been posted on Saturday but I was a little tied up arranging a surprise party for my mum's 70th birthday.

This month we are challenged to 'Steampunk or Vintage' now when it comes to steampunk I just have no idea where to start and I was so glad when Shaz added the option of vintage to the agenda. I used another of my Kanban design sheets and backing papers and teamed it with some distress ink around all the edges, some seam binding in three different colours and a border die cut which is supposed to be stars but I think looks more like cogs! Not much else to it but I actually kind of like it plus I brought one of those Tim Holtz distressing tools and found it so much easier to use.
