Party Time Tuesdays' Challenge

Fellow Tangled Up In Creativity member, Jenn, is the proud new owner of Party Time Tuesdays!  Check out all the fun details for this week's challenge, here.  
The winner will receive Regal Greetings stamp kit by {ippity} stamps.  
I've been wanting to make a steampunk style card for awhile, so here's my first attempt.  Here are a few close-ups of some of this card's elements.
The chandelier image is from {ippity}'s Regal Greetings.  I used American Crafts' Black Zing embossing powder to add a little shimmer to the image.  The blue cardstock is by Recollections (Michael's brand), and the oval is mounted on black cardstock cut with a scallop oval nestie.  The pattern paper was made by stamping the key and heart images from {ippity}'s Music of My Heart with Tim Holtz's Tea Bag distressed ink on parchment paper.  
 The clock work pieces I had (who knows why), the clock face is attached with a brad (prongs showing on the front for "hands").  
 The black lace and blue organza are scraps.  The charm is leftover from a previous project.  
Thanks for looking!
