A different Steampunk

I find myself with a few hours peace and quiet while Granddad takes the youngster to play with dinosaurs.  So I thought I'd better not waste the opportunity to post something.
This Steampunk image is from a Jems Design's CD called The Age of Steampunk. It's full of beautiful images of women and girls from the era. This one is called Victoria and I chose her for a young girl's birthday card. I made this card a few months ago but I need another card for a young girl and think I might use this image again.

I first printed out the decoupage sheet on the CD and made up the topper by layering Victoria onto a pink polka dot paper and silver mirri. I glittered up her skirt - because every girl should have some glitter.
I edged a white 8"x8" blank with spun sugar Distress ink. I used black Kanban card trimmed using a Spellbinder Edgeability die and did the same to the matching backing paper from the CD. I attached a strip of velvet ribbon before matting onto the card blank. More black card matted onto silver mirri and the decoupage on top. The sentiment was created in MCS and layered onto black card.
I made a couple of velvet ribbon loops to look like a bow and made the roses. I added scrolls and a feather, some candi and a black button to finish off.
