Wishi washi and needles and pins

This is for Allsorts 138: needles and pins. I've used print outs from a CD that I've just acquired, My Craft Studio 'tinkering with steampunk'. I used an element sheet, using some of it to decoupage, tearing off part of the image, so that more of the Tim Holtz tissue tape was visible, which is for today's Daring cardmakers challenge is to use washi tape. I've added a pin with beads, some flowers with pearls and a Craftwork cards sentiment. I distressed the edges of the white card blank with worn lipstick DI.

This is also for:
