Steampunk Birthday Card

It's Tuesday which means it's time to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. I was in a Steampunk kind of mood, so I decided to make a birthday card using one of the fabulous ladies from the Steampunk Darlings Clear Stamp Set 1 by Kelly Horton for That's Crafty. The sentiment combines the Timewarp Clear Stamp Set by Janet Klein for AALL and Create with the Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set by Heffy Doodle.

Here it is!
