Hot Metal

I've so used to having schedule posts I nearly forgot to post this, so this has to be a quick post cos I'm about to be told its time to go to my Sis.
Anyway this card is for the Hot Metal Challenge for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I guess I've cheated cos I didn't use anything metal. Instead I used a embossing folder on grey card to give a faux look of metal and of course my mousey is on a tin wind up mouse.
The cogs are Sizzix and the I've also used some jet pearls but there is a brad so maybe thats made of metal.
Do pop over to the challenge and check out the fab creations and we have a new sponsor this week.
I can tell my by Hubbys habits that I've got about five minutes, so a quick link up. If its wrong I'll deal with it later.

Love how you've tied this cute little fellow into the steampunk/metal theme. The die cut cogs work perfectly with his clockwork mouse. Great card.

It's a brilliant take on the theme. Lots of 'metal' there as far as I can see and the whole design is terrific.
