A Birthday Card

I have finally had a chance to get a little scrapbooking done.  This has been another crazy month that is flying by, just as fast as last month.  We are still dealing with renovations, hopefully by next week everything will be done.  I did manage to sneak away with my sister Pat, for a fantastic week in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago.  We had so much fun; the weather was gorgeous, lot's of shopping, walking, and laughs. It was hard coming back to our cool temperatures!
Here's my birthday card using the new Sizzix Tim Holtz Tick Tock die:
I don't know why, but I love clocks.  I keep buying different clocks for my home, love any kind of paper with clocks, clock embellishments, and the list goes on.  So when I saw this Sizzix die, I knew I had to have it.  I cut it out with chipboard and "Content"paper from Authentique's collection, Carefree. After glueing the paper to the chipboard, I lightly inked the edges with Weathered Wood and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, applied Rock Candy Crackle paint and let dry.  I wasn't sure how I wanted the middle of the clock, but after looking through my papers, found this paper (Hip to the Jive-Times Nouveau Collection) from Graphic45, which had clocks that fit perfectly inside.  I also used the paper and stickers from this collection for the rest of the card.  The flowers were made using the Sizzix Pinecone die and Mini Paper Rosette die.  I added in the wood Prima bird, mini Prima flowers, a brad from My Mind's Eye, and my rub-on sentiments were some old ones from 7Gypsies.
Hope this inspires you with at least one idea on how to use your clock die, I'm sure I'll have more in the future!
Have a great day!
