Steampunk Owl ~ Slimline card!

Ble litt vanskelig å ta bilde, så mye gull og glimmer! Slimlinekortet mitt her er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #212., og det flotte ugle motivet i steampunkstil, som kombinerer to ting jeg er veldig glad i ❤️ ~ det er fra vår nye sponsor LC Waterworth. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema ~ og med hele 4 uker frist! God Sommer! ~ velkommen skal du være! ☺️

(norwegian text = Happy New Year)
