"Old Metal is Fashionable"

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Smeared And Smudged November Member Blog Hop! I am very excited to be a part of this Hop today because this is my first "Steampunk" creation. As you will see, I need to work on getting some Steampunk supplies! LOL!!! I have the most important items though, some images and digital papers from Crafty Chaos Designs. I created this card by following this months Smeared And Smudged Card  Sketch (very loosely followed, you can see it below)! Do you think it's close enough to enter into the challenge?  Now if you hopped here from Sugar's blog you are on the right track; but if you just happened to come across my blog you will need to start from the beginning at Terra's blog... so you don't miss any of the gorgeous creations!!!

(I actually turned the sketch... but didn't really have any type of "Steampunk" embellishments to add!)
