The theme for the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT529) on Splitcoast is It’s About Time! So I had to give it a try since I thought I had the perfect images & dies. The butterflies, background & flowers are also new & will be released tomorrow! So be sure to check back..they are fabulous!

I even made mine a tad shabby..something I don’t do often. My shabby was done w/ multiple embossings and sponging with Distress inks. The clock was first embossed w/ plain white powder, sponged, die cut then part of the new Belles Vinges was embossed w/ a sparkly, shabby white powder twice..once slightly offset (to add a little more shabby) onto a piece of ODBD Shabby Rose paper. Then I sponged the 3 colors of Distress inks over it. I combined the two greetings, embossed & sponged, then used a corner rounder & attached it to a white die cut tag. A white die cut vine, flowers  & some embossed, sponged & die cut butterflies were added on top.

And here’s a look at the inside. Since I didn’t have enough of the beautiful paper left, I sponged & stamped it. Not sure what that weird shadow is in the lower right corner.
