Create Time

I hit the wall when I was working on this card. The challenge for Compendium of Curiosities II was Gilded Kraft Glassine from p. 39 of Tim Holtz's book Compendium of Curiosities 2. The technique was no problem, it was actually a lot of fun. I had a cool piece of gilded glassine and my mojo went on a long coffee break. I must have held and stared at the glassine for over an hour without a clue as to what I was going to do. I kind of knew I wanted to die cut the glassine, but that's as far as I got. Everything clicked into place when I looked at the alarm clock die from Tim and realized that there was no clock face on the die. The clock needed a face and I had just the face for it (from Stampland). I assembled the ckock, stamped some flowers and flourishes (Tim's stamps) on a background panel from one of Tim's paper stacks and added the sentiment using words from Tim's ChitChat. Thanks to the Funkie Junkie Boutique for sponsoring this challenge.
I am also entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is Hey, Girl and the Kraft Journal challenge which is make me smile.

It turned out GREAT! I had kinda the same problem when I did this challenge - what to do, what to do??? Love the clock idea, and your background is wonderful too!
