sometimes FATE and your DREAMS collide TH Gears Steampunk Tag

Created this Steampunk Tag using mostly Tim Holtz items. Recycled a manilla folder for the Tag base. Used TH Steampunk embossing folder on Tag base. Used TH Distress Ink Walnut Stain on Tag. Used imagine spray inks: Terra Cotta & Walnut on the Tag Base. Used TH Mini Gears Set dies. Used scraps of TH core'dinations cardstock for the front of the gears. Recycled cardboard from a cereal box for back of cardstock gears to give them sturdiness. Used TH Distress ink walnut stain on Gears. Used imagine spray inks on the gears. 

Stamped TH ticket & sentiment:
sometimes FATE and your DREAMS collide
I thought the sentiment fit well with gears theme. Used TH Mini Tickets die with recycled cardboard for back of Ticket for sturdiness.

Distressed the edges of the ticket. Inked the edges of the ticket with TH Distress ink walnut stain. Used TH Distress Glitter on Tag base, gears & ticket. Added Th brads & jute string.
