Steampunk Victoria - SSD Relay Challenge #3

Good Evening all of my lovely friends.  After a rigorous morning (to the doctor with 4 sick kids, then to the outpatient lab at the hospital so 2 of them could get some tests done, a flu shot for one, and a prescription for another) I felt lucky to even have time to work on any crafts at all.

This week, I have been participating in the fun Progressive Challenge over at Sassy Studio Design.  For challenge #1, we were given a free digital image (that has not yet been released) and told to make a creation using the image.  In order to get the second image, this challenge had to be completed.  Then once the second challenge was completed we were given the third image.  This image was the main focus of today's creation.  Her name is Steampunk Victoria.  Isn't she darling???  For challenge #3, the little "twist" was to make the card vintage theme.
RECIPE is below the challenges list
Even though I was one week behind at Dutch Dare Challenges, I loved last week's sketch and had to use it.  Then looking at the sketch over at The Outlawz, the sketch the for Wednesday Sketch Challenge,  I noticed it was quite similar with only a few dissimilarities.  So, that is the sketch challenge I will be entering with this creation.
Here are the challenges I am entering with this card:
Sassy Studio Design - Progressive Challenge #3
 Cricut Cardz - CardzTV - #93 Think Pink
Creative Inspiration #134 - Monochromatic
Whimsy Stamps - #11 make your own flowers
Emerald Faerie Garden - #11 Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Base - chocolate brown card stock
Large background paper is KaiserCraft - Pennyroyale Evelyn
Gear image collage behind image and mat was found on the internet.  I didn't mark down the site, but will try to credit the location a little later :O)
Image background is the opposite side of the KaiserCraft paper mentioned above
Steampunk Victoria was colored with Whisper Strokes
Sentiment by Whimsy Stamps Wild Side Tickets
Lace Ribbon is by MME

Pink roses around the bottom  were handmade by ME (cut 2 1/2" circles from Classic Font, then trimmed and rolled)
