This week was themed The Daring Cardmakers which I found really challenging. Our dare was to design  a " steampunk " card . It is all about 19th century all the steam and clockwork machines, inventions, balloons and metal things. For me this period is very fascinating. I like vintage clocks. Our Local Antique shop has a special room devoted to all kind of vintage clocks. Every time I stand in the middle of this room  I  can listen  the  lovely  music  that   transfer me to the past times.

And here is my card:
