Loving Memories

Welcome back!  Hope you are having a lovely day!

Today's card was made for two challenges, one based upon an inspiration picture and the other to use a clock or watch on your card.

I visualized using the diamond pattern from Clockworks and the floral images from Elements of Style based on the following picture from this week's challenge at Stampin' Royalty.  I actually ended up using stamps from a few stamp sets.  

The gray was taken from the picture on the left, with the adorable metal jug lamp and the metal top of the box (or picnic basket?) next to it.

The watch is for the Papercraft Star challenge:

After creating my collage with several stamps inked in Riding Hood Red and Basic Gray, I sponged more Basic Gray around the edges and through some of the open spaces.  I added the watch image, then searched for the right sentiment.  The collage ended up with a vintage feel to it, and to me the watch symbolized time passing, so I thought the card could work as a sympathy card and chose the sentiment from Loving Thoughts.

A ribbon flower anchors the sentiment.  It was made from Gray Two-Tone ribbon and then topped with a Vintage brad with a tiny Basic Pearl in the center,  It was adhered atop two ribbon banners.

Thanks for coming by today!  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  I hope the week ahead brings you happiness and peace.
