Contrary Mary!!

Hello all!
Now, I know what I said in my last few posts but shock and horror,  this one isn't a CAS card!  Just chalk it up to being an Aquarian - "unconventional individualists" or contrary as my OH would say!
         Anyway I wanted to do a card that used one of my new digis (available this coming Friday at Can You Digi It LilyPink Designs ) so I decided to merge a Kenny K digi called Scarlett West with my Steampunked Top Hat digi.  The card may not be CAS but it doesn't have that much clutter on it - just a few cogs, brads and a clock face.  Oh, not forgetting the corner frames as I felt it looked unbalanced without just a little something more - and then I added a small key charm to Scarlett's bag strap - so, summing up, not CAS but not too loaded either........
                                   On to the photo!

      As I said, the top hat digi is one of my new ones and will be available to buy this Friday along with 3 additional new images.  Two of these will be ideal for Valentine's Day cards and tomorrow I will be showing a couple more creations using them.

                            I would like to enter this into the challenges at - Kenny K's Krafty Krew , Cards Galore , One Crazy Stamper , Inky Chicks , Artistic Inspirations , Lady Anne's Challenges .

Thanks so much for stopping by and a big hello to my new followers :)

Hi, Mary. Popped over from Edie's. I envy those of you who seem to embellish effortlessly. Mine always end up looking a mess and/or homemade. LOL. I live your stuff. I'll be popping in again. Happy Crafting!

Steampunk awesomeness! The top hat is fabulous Dawn. Looks amazing behind that sassy image. You did a great design job with all those gears and the clock. Hugs!

Simply fantabulous! I love this card, too! You can do CAS and you can do not CAS. Either way you do great designs! Love Scarlett & the top hat and your coloring. Love the papers and all the fun embellies, too! :^)

So, you probably knew that I'd love this.

Great card. I love the way you colored both the Kenny K image and your own digi. The contrast between the cool and warm greys is fabulous.

The card is well designed with the perfect amount of "stuff".
