Let's Get Sketchy with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge at the

with the them being chosen this week by our fabulous organiser Jane

She has chosen a sketch, here it is

I had a leaving card to create for a member of my team, who was leaving to another post in the Company, so not actually leaving, so decided to use this sketch to create her, this card
The base layer and contrast is a chocolate brown card, and the papers are of course my favourite GCD Studio Paris Nights.  The sentiment is computer generated to suit the count down to her progression into her new role.  The little chain to give the idea of pocket watches.  The clocks were stamped from a large set that I won and the hands were separate so I could place the hands of the clocks where I wanted too.  I air brushed these in E33 and then I added glossy accents to represent the glass dome of the clocks.  Little amber diamante's added just to finish it off. She loved it hope you like it too.

Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   Just have to say you are all awesome thrilled to be over the 700 mark and looking forward to more candy buying:)

Kate, I love this card. Anything with clocks or vintage images and Im dribbling over my laptop, lol!! I love that amazing paper. If I told you Ive never heard of it would you think Ive been living under a rock?? I adore paper but dont have much of it at all. I think I need to get with the programme and buy more papers. This card is fantastic. Lee xx
