Vintage clock

Ooooh, I am going to blow my own trumpet now and say isn’t this gorgeous? I had a lot of fun making this card. It’s certainly not a quick one but it was worth it – I think so, anyway!

I particularly love the sponging and spritzing on the clock face and the lovely flower, which was made using the Fancy Flower punch coupled with the paper crimper, along with some direct-to-paper, sponging and general messing about.

Let me know if you’d like a class on distressing... it will give me an excuse to buy the distressing kit!

You can’t get this ribbon any more - it was from the November/December promotion – but this card would look just as good with the same ribbon in Early Espresso. Ooh, might have to buy some of that, too.

I really pushed the boat out on this one and decorated the inside, too!
