By the Cute and Girly - July challenge

This month at By the Cute and Girly the challenge, chosen by Brigitte, is "A Day at......".    This is a great theme for the summer months and it could be a day out anywhere, the seaside, the lakes, the country, the Zoo.... whatever you fancy.
This month BTC&G has a new digi sponsor, Mayzy Art.  Mayzy's images are brilliant, full of life and detail and suitable for every occasion.  Please pop into her Etsy shop and prepare to be aMayzyed!  I used one of her images, Steampunk Zilpha, to make a sort of girly/non-girly card....As you can see from the wrench in her hand Zilpha is heading off to the Science Museum or maybe the Young Scientists Exhibition to lend a hand!  I used Bo Bunny "Timepiece" papers,  Kraft card, TH idealogy sprocket gears, Spellbinders labels dies and some flowers from my Etsy shop.   

Recently I have been doing an online Crazy Quilting course and re- discovering my old hobby, hand embroidery, as a result.  So when I wanted to get the effect of chains around the image I stitched around the oval with cable chain stitch, so much handier that trying to glue on metal chains!
So why not enter this month's challenge?
We have great prizes up for grabs ie  
                     A $20 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp
                     A £10 gift voucher from Joanna Sheen
                     And 5 digital images (your choice) from MayzyArt
By the Cute and Girly is an all crafts challenge so it does not have to be a card..... rules etc HERE
Thanks for looking
