Steampunk thank you easel card

Our friends recently let us stay with them when visiting the Bodensee area.  I managed to leave my glasses there, and as I am blind as a bat, they were kind enough to send them express.  They are steampunk lovers so I wanted to make them a thank you card that was special.  The image was taken from the blog Crafty Moments.  The image is the steampunk Mary.  He has a number of free digi stamps that are free - all his own art and they are really great.  As a new blogger I hope I am referencing him the right way?  The digi stamp came colored and non-colored.  I used the non-colored but then used his colored one as a reference for coloring using my Polychromos colored pencils.  I used a free clip art image of a circuit board as the background then used Ranger Liquid Pearls Hydrangea and Key Lime to add some highlights on the nodes.  Those are actual chips (don't know what they are though) that my husband gave to me - makes an interesting and unique embellishment.  This is an easel card and since the message inside was personal I'm not including that picture.

Here is the front of the card.

Closeup of Mary.  Sorry not terribly focused.

Here is a bad closeup of Mary.  I used Glossy Accents on the goggles, the eye glass, lapels, and on the boots.

Yes those are real.

Here is the card standing up.
