Crafty cardmakers # 170 Time

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Lin is hosting the challenge this time. Our theme is 'Time'.
You can interpret that how you like as long as it relates to time in some way, and if it is NOT obvious you must tell us how it matches the theme please.
As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be just cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

Here is the card I've made for this challenge.
I call it 'Time Flies' (Tempus Fugit).

I'm still working with some 'Leftovers', Masterboards mostly but also paper and card like the one below which I had sprayed with ink and then not used.
I stamped onto half of this with Stampendous 'Time Flies' sentiment stamps.

To go with this paper I stamped onto a blank card with Tim Holtz inks:
Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves and Evergreen Bough.

I stamped a few more of these ready to use later.

I used a stamp by Sam Poole called 'Clock'.
For the toppers I used some paper which had originally been used to mop over some stamping and it looked like this: 'waste not , want not' as the saying goes.
The stamp that I used was by 'Pinkpaislee' and is from a set called 'Daily Junque'.
I heat embossed these before cutting them out.

Here is the finished card.
Once again I have used three images to decorate this card as I love odd numbers they have a way of making a design more interesting and altering the angle of the clocks encourages the eye to move around the design making it more visually appealing but what do you think?
You may notice I've done similar with the sentiment and even the background is divided into three, I just can't help myself!

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up withtoo.
 Happy crafty card making.
