CPS Sketch Sponsored by Christian Paper Crafts

Hello, everyone! This week Christian Paper Crafts is sponsoring the CPS Sketch Challenge #221! (To the left). I just had to play along....isn't this a fun sketch? Check out all of the challenge details and awesome samples here at the CPS Challenge blog. As soon as I saw the center circle panel, I knew I had to use this new set by Our Daily Bread designs, called "Time". Plus, it's perfect timing for a co-worker's birthday....I love when a plan comes together!

This was such a fun and easy card to make. The clock was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with sponge daubers and markers, cut out, paper pierced, and popped up with foam tape. I stamped an extra set of clock hands to pop up as well. The Bo Bunny "Timepiece" designer paper was cut into three pieces, corners rounded, sponged, then paper pierced....also popped up with foam tape. The little gold pieces are Hero Arts Metallic Decor, which I found last year in the clearance section at Archivers....they have the best clearance!!! The center of the tag was popped up and the outside edges were adhered flat against the May Arts Twill Ribbon, to give a rounded look....looks better in the real!
