Paper Smooches Sparks

Time for another Paper Smooches Sparks challenge!

Here's the neat inspiration photo they gave us this month:

I decided to make my monster have the colors of the clock, but be inside a larger clock. The monster is from Paper Smooches Falling for You. The numbers on the clock are rubons from Marcella K. The clock hands are from a SU arrow punch. The circle for the clock was cut using Nestabilities.

I decided to use a SU embossing folder for texture because the photo had a lot of texture in it. I also gave the Paper Smooches sentiment from the Sentiment Sampler the same clock colors which are PTI's Aqua Mist, Soft Stone, and Hawaiian Shores. I cut it out with the SU label punch.

I didn't have a "time to" stamp, so I just wrote it, but I thought it went perfectly with the clock. The kraft ribbon is PTI, and so is the Aqua Mist card base.

This will make a cute birthday card for a guy in the future, or maybe my nephew Liam. I think it turned out really whimsical. I was also able to make one more card with this inspiration photo that I'll be posting soon, so keep your eyes peeled :)
