a little girly steampunk

Hi all
i have been playing with some new Kanban stamps,they are fabulous for creating steampunk cards and here is the first of 3 that i have made.I used my new chronology papers from papermania,promarkers to colour the image,a Stampin up daisy 2 die for the flower and an su antique brad for the flower centre,distress ink by TH in milled lavender,TH snaps ,pearls and ribbon from meiflower crafts and a TH embossing folder,i also used nesties for the scalloped and plain ovals..the sentiment stamp was a freebee from a mag .steampunk but still girly ...
