FCCB Challenge #146 Time Flies....x

There is nothing more fitting than the title of our challenge over at FCCB this week as
my eldest daughter celebrated her 22nd Birthday on Thursday 
Oh how

We have been reminiscing - like you do - and so this very phrase has been bantered around a lot over the last few weeks !! x !!

Happy Birthday JOJO
My card was really simple to make. . . 
Still in love with my new distressing tool I matted some Basil Basics String of Pearls Bling cardstock and BoBunny Gabrielle Fairest, inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo onto an 8x8 card blank. George and Basic Shapes Cartridge is perfect for getting the layers even if you don't like cutting "by eye" !!
I used Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut the lovely clock and border using Tim Holtz co-ordinations card stock and sanded the brightness off, adding some cosmic shimmer glue to form the fake pearls and a brad coloured with an orange pro-marker.
The Happy Birthday letters are from Alphabet cartridge, and JOJO from Artiste. 
The pearls and gems were also coloured with the pro-marker.
I stamped a large calligraphy stamp across more of the lovely papers with the addition of BoBunny Almond Dotted Swiss paper and added another border to finish off, making the inside a feature too.

Challenge #146 runs from Monday 0800 until 2400 Sunday night (SMT)
Please pop over to FCCB, give the DT some love as their creations are amazing as ever and join in the fun with your own project. 
Please remember to let us know which Cricut Cartridge you use to be in with a chance of the weekly prize and top 5 blinkie for your blog.
The papers used for my card can be purchased over at the Craft Den.
