Hi Shell

Hope you are all well in your neck of the woods .. .. I am able to put you out of your misery ... .. it is called an Armillary Sphere I think (not that I knew .. .. I googled it LOL!! and here is a link so you can learn all about it and impress Nige later!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armillary_sphere)

You say this is "not your thing" .. .. well I am thinking it could be because you have done a smashing job. Love it very much.

Have a good week and off you go to do your homework now!

Love Jules xx

Great card hunnie, love the new papers they have a sort of vintage feel that goes with your image.
My man says it is a Gyroscope for navigating the stars or something to do with navigating the moon and stars, I hope Nige isn't still stuck to google trying to work it out lol.
