"Time flies, love lasts"

Hello all,
my post today is for the latest challenge at Time Out and the theme for this one is inspiration from the phrase 'Time flies, love lasts'.  We have a previous challenge winner as our Guest designer - please take some time out to visit Karen's blog and say 'hello'.
       For my card I made a background using a Tim Holtz clock face stencil and spritzing the card stock with Dylusions ink and some Pearl Shimmer Mist.  The text is a large rubber stamp that I got because I loved the sentiment - I need to remind myself sometimes to enjoy the present moment more!  I finished the card by adding a Copics coloured digi from my box of coloured images that I am trying to use up and matting the whole thing on to some purple card before sticking it to the card base.




Thanks for popping in!

The spray and stencil make an awesome background Dawn. The big sentiment is a nice touch. :-)

Fabulous card! Love that bright purple. I'm always surprised I don't see more purple in papercrafting as it often looks stunning like your card here. Such a cool background treatment!

Kathi said...

Gosh! That digital image is adorable and so beautifully colored.

I love your background. You really achieved a nice variegated speckled look that is seriously cool.

The sentiment is fabulous and very true.

Great card!
