Steampunk Birthday Card

I've had Lady Victoria by Kenny K in my files for eons now and I've kinda forgotten about her... until one of my friends asked me if I knew what "steampunk" was last week! LOL! It instantly made me want to her color her and put her on a card and think of all things steampunk!

Lots of distressing with my Tim Holtz distressing tool, ink and stamp by SU, gold embossing powder (birthday stamp, polka dots stamped on background), torn lace, staples, brad, and grommet eyelet.  The cajun colored piece also has flocked circles.  And hooray, all of these papers were in my scrap stash! 

Inked her up with Copics.  Added Crystal effects to her boots, her goggles, and the "glass piece" on her cane.  

Entering this in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Love to Create - Recycled (the lace is torn from dress trim)
Creative Card Crew - Song Inspired (The Doctor's Wife by Clockwork Quartet)
Milk Coffee - Embossing

'Till next time!
