Steampunk Mona

Did you know that Mona was almost killed by boredom in her castle in Tuscany? Her personal painter Leonardo told her about machines that could fly or change the world as she knew it. So she decided to put her goggles on and prepare for her flight to far away countries.

This card is my entry for another irresistible SPA challenge: Altered Mona!
(The stamps that I´ve used here are from Lost Coast, Creavil, Scrollswork, and Oxford Impressions, and I love the Tim Holtz tissue tape everywhere in the background!)
