Stripped Gears And Flowers

Hello all you fabulous paper artists in blogland!

Receive His Grace
For we are God's [own] handwork (His workmanship), 
recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that
we may do those good works which God predestined
(planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He
prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them
[living the good life which He prearranged and 
made ready for us to live].
                                EPHESIANS 2:10

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! Yes I'm off to a late start. Things have been crazy around here lately. Never a dull moment, can't get bored that way. LOL 
I would like to share with you this lovely card that I created Heartfelt Creations using the All Geared Up Collection. 

 Paper: Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Tan, Ivory and Blue Shimmer Cardstock
 Ink: Ranger Adirondack Earthtones Espresso
 Accessories: Spellbinders - Grand Labels Twenty-Three, Labels Thirty-Six, Glitter Brads, Pop Dots, Really Reasonable Ribbon Seam Binding Tobacco, Bow-it-All V2.0.

Instructions: Cut the card base from Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty-Three #2 die in dark brown cardstock. Die cut next mat using the #3 die in blue shimmer cardstock. Stamp cogs and gears on tan CS, then die cut using the #4 die. Next take that same die and trace around the outer edge onto medium brown cardstock and fussy cut. Distress the edges on all 4 pieces and layer them together. Die cut ivory CS using the #2 die from Labels Thirty-six, stamp grunge image multiple times then stamp sentiment in center. Next take that same die and trace around the outer edge onto blue shimmer paper, fussy cut, distress the edges of both these pieces and adhere together. Apply pop dots and adhere to card. Now it is time to create some gear flowers. Die cut six flowers, paint all six with 3D paint, shape, adhere together, add a brad in flower center and apply onto card. Create a bow using the Bow-it-All and adhere in center bottom of card as shown.
