Happy New Year and Thanks You very much for painting my 2013 a colorful and wonderful year

While wishing everyone a great new year, I would also like to thank everyone for a wonderful 2013.   To some of you whom I have not met, your amazing works have both motivated and inspired me to go further in my creative endeavour.  This is my card to show my gratitude that travels far beyond in the sky and aclock to represent the ending 2013 and wonderful new 2014.

To make this a special card, I have done some researches on gear motion and incorporated the mechanism into this card (as shown in the video).

I used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection as it has the cheerful and thankful orangey color tone and also gears.   To heightened the Steampunk theme, I made some metal foil die cuts for embellishments.
Both flowers and vines are from following Cheery Lynn Designs dies:
Lace Corner Deco D (B164)  (Note:  These corner dies are so versatile and can be used various embellishments)
Lacey Pumpkin Corner Flourish (B138)

As for the gears, I needed something that can cut thick chipboard and pulled out my Tim Holtz Mini Gears (657211).

Between the cloud, I have added some sun rays with the Tim Holtz Distress Paint Picket  Fence and bling it up with Ranger Star Dust stickles glitter glue.
And in this new year, may you find sunshine in your everyday life.

Thank you for stopping by.
