Why Fit In?

Last week while making a quick trip to 'My Mums Craft Shop' (bricks & mortar one) we came across this wonderful stamp set from Creative Expressions.  It is called SteamPunk Dreams and is designed by Sam Poole, well it just shouted out to Ria and I and we HAD to buy it. There are 12 stamps in the set and for this card I have used 2.  I made this card with Ria in mind as I felt the sentiment was perfect for her and I used blue ink for her love of denim, she has at least 12 pairs of jeans! lol (not all blue!)  She has never been one to follow fashion and music trends she finds what she is comfortable with and doesn't mind if others don't like it, although I think sometimes she does feel like the odd one out but I have always stressed to her that it is more important to be herself and who she wants to be and not who she thinks she should be!  So that is the inspiration behind my card.
So as well as the stamps I have used white pearlescent card base and cs, plain white cs, TH Steampunk border die, Darice clock face embossing folder.

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