Gothic Arches - Steampunk

Steampunk is a style I've never tried before, but have always been intrigued by it. Martina picked a great theme this week for the Gothic Arches Challenge blog, and here is my project. My idea was to have the key look like it's turning the gears that will fly the balloon. It was fun figuring out how to line up the various metal pieces to make them look like they would engage each other. Stamp credits: Artistic Outpost, Stampers Anonymous and Inkadinkado.
