Time Flies

Good morning, hope I find you well.
Another Saturday dawns so it means another challenge over at Fantasy Stampers.
This time we would like to see your creations that have the theme of-

TIME FLIES

Now that had me thinking, clocks, reunions, lots of different sayings but eventually I settled on this.




Do you remember blowing dandelion clocks when you were little to try to tell the time depending on how many puffs it took to clear the seed head of spinning seeds? Well that is what inspired this card.
I used one of my favourite stamps, Dandelion Wishes from Inkylicious and a sentiment from a new set to me from STAMPlorations.
I'm afraid the Brusho's came out again for this, which I added to the base after embossing the seed heads in white on linen cardstock. I added the sentiment aferwards using the same white embossing powder. The frame was cut using a Spellbinders Romantic rectangles die but I kept the outer and put the actual rectangle to one side for future use, I popped the frame up on pads to create added dimension.
OK that's about it for today. Why not pop over to the main site and see what the rest of the fab DT have come up with for your inspiration, then join in, we'd love to see your creations.

I shall enter the following challenges-

STAMPlorations October Challenge - Stamps and embossing
Love Rubberstamps - Anything Goes
