Happy Birthday Aud Sentiments!

In honor of Aud Sentiments' 4th Birthday
I have created two cards - this 2nd one is for the 2nd week of the challenge.  

"Rosalind" provided by Lacy Sunshine
Oh my, but I love Steampunk... the gears and clocks and the Victorian Punk clothes - give me the freedom to go wild!  I had a hard time coloring her hair with my Copics, so I used my Alcohol ink Trias which have a tiny point like a Micron pen, and in great colors.  With the Trias I was able to get in all those spiky hairs!  Considering the wild colors, I opted to use black and white mats as well as with the additional elements.  The clock & gears is from Beyond the Fringe and the "4" in the circle is from a Hero Arts collection.
This will be for a long distance friend and the sentiment inside says: 
"I partied wildly in your honor till I'm exhausted.  
You can go ahead and celebrate with out me!"
