One Layer Vintage Steampunk Card

I created this one layer card using the Leather Girl Image from Smudgetastic Digital Stamps. I colored my image using MS Paint and then printed the design and the poetry out on designed scrapbook paper. Finding a paper that wouldn't overwhelm the design was a challenge.

I love steampunk and vintage so I decided to combine some of this week's challenges with this card. The card is embellished with three purple rhinestones and three steampunk gears.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Stampotique - one layer card
Art Impressions - one layer card
That Craft Place - vintage
LEJ Designs -  #17 vintage
Dream Valley - steampunk
The Crazy Challenge - #127 anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy - include a sentiment
Craft Your Passion - #124 power of three
Created with Love - #3 three of a kind
Simon Says Stamp - no rules

I hope you will take the time to view the artwork on the above listed sites. You will be happy you took a look!
