Sprocket Again

This is my second card using Sprocket the Steampunk Aviator, a digi stamp from Saturated Canary.  I didn't have anyone in mind when I coloured this image but just wanted to have some fun with colour and practice with my Promarkers.  The inspiration for the colour scheme came from the floral backing paper which is from a Cuddly Buddly download Peppy Papers Purple/Lime.  The gingham paper is from a Papercrafts CD by Crafter's Companion.  However,  whilst putting it together I did keep in mind the current Saturated Canary Challenge of 1 image, 2 printed papers and 3 embellishments which I hope I've met.
1 image - Sprocket The Steampunk Aviator
2 printed papers -  floral and gingham
3 embellishments - flowers, brads and ribbon

For the layout I took inspiration from this week's sketch challenge at Cute Card Thursday.

The flower embellishments were made by punching out five layers of daisies in various shades of yellow and purple using the Woodware large daisy punch.  The top flower was punched from glitter card to add a little bling.  The leaves were cut from two different shades of green card using a Quickutz die.  The layer of green card behind Sprocket was embossed using the Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder.  The ribbon is from Stampin' up.
