Can't Find My Panties

I'm just popping in with a quick card.. I really like making vintage inspired cards and I do consider "Steampunk" to be a kind of vintage card. I also like that it allows me to use one of my favorite types of cardstock--Kraft.

I started by inking the Cuddlebug "gears" folder with Close To My Heart "Brown Bag" ink and running it through the Big Shot. I then added a row of straight sewing machine stitching to create a border. Using glitter I use the Tim Holtz "Weathered Clock" die to cut a clock face. I also added a 7 Gypsies "gear" and brad as well as three "glittered brads" form Paper Studios. The organza ribbon is from my stash. The image is "Jayne Jetpack" from Kenny and is colored with Copics. She is popped up with foam dots for so added dimension. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and with my twisted sense of humor I thought it fit perfectly with the expression on the digis face. I used a Fiskars oval punch on the sentiment. Finally I added the swirl bling from Recollections that I colored with Copics to match my vintage/Steampunk vibe. I also distressed the mat edges with a Tim Holtz tool.
