Universal Birthday card

Welcome to my second inspiration piece for our Country View Challenge, hosted this month by Evelyn., who chose "Time" as the theme. Think clocks, clockfaces, watches...

This time I made a card :

The focal stamps are from the Visible Image Somewhere in time set, stamped in Versafine Black and Memento Summer Sky Blue,
I added a "to" with an alphabet stamp set and a die-cut word from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 7PK - Handwritten Celebrate by Tim Holtz, which I embossed with several layers of Frantage aged copper embossing powder.

Over to you now, link up your project to the challenge for the chance to win a £20 voucher for the Country View Craft shop, but make sure you follow all the rules for your entry to be valid!

Thanks for coming by,

Happy New Year! 

The new year reminds us of the passing time and would you believe it Time is the theme the lovely Evelyn has chosen for our January Challenge at Country View Challenges. Clocks, etc... 

For my first inspiration post, I had fun making this Vintage inspired tag:

To make my background I stuck a piece of Gelli printed paper on a sturdy base. I used a variety of stamps and stencils to build the Gelli paper with Fresco paints.
I added some Tissue tape and embossed all around the tag with Frantage embossing powder in  Aged Rose.
The clock and Timeless sentiment is from a Stamperia sheet of chipboard stickers (Romantic Journal collection)
The lace and flower head are from my bits and bobs box.

Over to you now, have a look at what the DT made on the Country View Challenge blog and link up your project to the challenge for the chance to win a £20 voucher for the Country View Craft shop.
