Drunken Stampers Challenge #117

This Challenge offers me the chance to try a sortof Steampunk card so here is my offering:

What is that! I hear you say ............. this is my first attempt ..........
I printed some background paper from Shabby Pink and then realised it didn't fit my card.  Hmmm!  I placed across the centre, stamped the top, added the piano which I had fussy cut ready.  I then stamped along the top but left the bottom of the card plain as I thought it could envelop the sentiment.  I found some ribbon which I thought looked a bit Steampunky so made a bow.  The sentiment was soooo plain ............. found a black liner and drew a pattern round it to match the ribbon edges.  I have heard of this 'doodling' and it saved the day I think.
This is the 'Sound of Music' to me at the moment - I am loving Steampunk - so I am entering this into Drunken Stampers Challenge - wish me luck!!
