Embossed and embossed

Hey, today I made this card for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge 29. I started out by embossing the black paper with the spellbinders M-bossibilities EL-017. I love that look it gives. It totally fits with Tim Holtz!!! Then I Embossed the "Enjoy the journey" and on the screws around the sentiment. (where the screws go from the embossing folder) I then die cut 2 gears suing Tim Holtz's die and then embossed them. I added this great brad from Bo Bunny and then attached it to the card using Tim's tiny attacher! I wanted to black out the staples, so I used my copic black and coloured the staples. For the inside I wanted to keep the flow to the card, so I placed black card stock inside and then layered it with the kraft card stock on top. I stamped the birds on one, inked around the edges and placed another piece of kraft near the bottom for the writer to write to their recipient. Lastly I embossed the "it's all perspective" and then this one was done!
I have entered the following challenges:
Studio L3 - Texture Fades
