My version of Steampunk

I've used a mix of Graphic45 stuff along with hand cut mannequin,star and some chain from an old necklace.

Papercraft Star - challenge 60 -Steampunk - I'm not really sure what defines Steampunk , I've tried to add the right elements and make my card colourful and feminine .Does it work ,I'm not sure .Anyhoo this is for Jan .

The Crafty Pad - challenge 137 - Blue and Brown - The Crafty Pad have just released some new stuff and guess what, Steampunk is the theme,pity I didn't have some to make my card.

Spring has certainly arrived with some beautiful warm sunny days ,our house hunting is on a go slow at the moment ,we only looked at one house on Saturday.The property had fantastic city views but this comes at a price,to get the garbage to street level for collection I would need oxygen to get up there and for a quick descent a tin tray to slide back down.
