Mad For Markers Vintage Dragon

Now this dragon image from the Fairy Ria and Friends collection available from the Mad For Markers Online Store I just adore but I wanted to make a vintage style card and really couldn't figure out what colours to go for so headed to my papers first and on choosing these wonderful papers from Echo Park Times & Seasons pad I realised that I didn't need to add much in the way of colour to the dragon so just used copic W1 for some shading (which still needs practice LOL) then I inked the edges, the ribbon is from my stash but I actually turned it over as the other side is very shiny and I thought too shiny for this style of card. I also used a tiny bit of the ribbon to make my tag.  Finished off with some nesties cog shapes and I think I have ended up with a vintage steampunk card

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
