New week, new challenges!

Hi, I want to share two new challenges - the first is at Make My Monday. The theme was picked by me and is Steampunk. My card is below.

I have two goals for the rest of this year: use up stash and use my rubber stamps! I believe I did that on this card - the 3 men are stamped and the embellishments are from my stash. The card background is embossed and the blue gears are die cut. The hot air balloon is a transparency and the pocket watch is chipboard. The word banner is from My Mind's Eye.

The challenge at Ooh La La Creations for the next two weeks is Christmas in July. My card is made with the Yesterday's Memories CD. I used the Puppy Love paper and Toppers. The gold frame, bow and 12 Days of Christmas sticker are from my stash. I cut the greenery from a Kaisercraft die.

It would be great to have you link up your projects at Make My Monday and Ooh La La Creations - please join in the challenges! Have a wonderful week!
