Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Anything but Square

Woohoo!! It is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge and this fortnight our theme is "anything but square". I needed a card for my nephew who is about to turn 16 (this makes me feel SO old when I can remember him as a toddler!!! LOL) and On Time for Class Oakley from the Whiff of Joy Summer stamp kit was perfect for the occassion!! I have created a round card by cutting around the Tim Holtz weathered clock die cut. The paper is a scrap from my stash.

I have coloured Oakley with copics and added some shading with a Prismacolor pencil.

Hmmm it's hard to decorate teenage boys' cards I think. I have kept the embellishments simple with a stamped cinema ticket using a Tim Holtz stamp and some of Tim's film strip ribbon. The sentiment is from Lilli of the Valley and the glass pebble is one I made myself.

Here's a close up of the pebble - I have added a sixteen from the backing paper to it for my own number bubble!

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x

Fab card, Jane! Love your idea to use the clock as your card shape base!! Perfect embellies too for a boy card - not sure they'd appreciate lots of pretties!! Juliexx
