October Challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

Eep how is it October already?  It's been so cold and dark in the mornings. I know snow will be falling here soon. 
This month at Crafts Galore Encore we are sponsored by the awesome Rick St.Dennis and as always we are Anything Goes.

I love a bit of Steampunk, so I chose 'Steampunk Rose Bug' to use for my card. There are so many images in the shop, I hadn't noticed this one until I saw someone else use it in another challenge.
