Patriotic mixed with a little bit of Steampunk

Well, there's not really much steampunk other than my image but her name is Steampunk Cindy, so that's my little bit! With it being Independence Day yesterday in America, there are lots of patriotic colour challenges about this weekend, so I thought I would join in! This card is for A Creative Romance's Challenge to use patriotic colours, Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #267 to be inspired by the photo below, Deep Ocean Challenge #81 to add a sentiment, Lacy Sunshine's Challenge #36 Anything Goes with a birthday option and for The Outlaws Friday Colouring Challenge to use red, white and blue.

And here's my card - I totally love how this one came out, even though I wouldn't normally use these colours together.
