Steampunk Card for Simply Betty Facebook Group Challenge

Hello to everyone from a very chilly me.  It did snow here but not a lot and it is freezing today.  I am hiding indoors and have made a Steampunk Style card with a wonderful free Image provided by the fabulous Betty for the Simply Betty Facebook Group Challenge.  My daughter has already claimed this card and it will be going to its new home tomorrow.

List of Materials used to make this card:

This has really been a project of self indulgence and I have gone to town with this one.

Card base is cut using Go Kreate large circle dies in 3 sizes. 
Backing paper is Hunkydory I think.
Design Papers are all Graphic 45 - Steampunk Debutante.
I have used the wonderful Betty images and coloured with my Promarker Pens.
Tim Holtz Clock Mask put through my Grand Calibre and used to make clock image. I have used distress inks on just about everything - Vintage Photo, Tim Holtz
Clock Hands were made in the same way using chipboard die cuts for templates and then lots of distress inks and Promarkers.
My favourite floral swirl die cut.  Flowers are cut from more Graphic 45 paper using my Spellbinder Die and again inked.
Ribbon, links, charm and boot are from my stash.  
Lots and lots of fun was had by me. I also cut an acetate circle for behind the clock face.
This reminds me of a Cinderella scene with Betty as Cinders, we have the clock and the shoe (boot) and a swirly carriage and the cage.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

I am watching the weather forecast and it looks as if we are in for more severe snow.  So its a cosy indoors afternoon for me.

Stay safe and well wherever you are.  A very warm welcome to my new followers.  I do appreciate you support and kind comments which keeps me going when the old Mojo disappears.

Hugs to all
