Eclectic - Enjoy Your Day

Hello friends - thank you for stopping by today and for the comments you leave - I always love to see you have been!  Today I am sharing a card that has been created from my UFO (Un-Finished Objects) pile - you know the pile that sits on your desk that you might use one day - and slowly gets added too - before you know it you have a mountain next to you - LOL!  Or is that just me!?!

I have cut the patterned paper using the Spellbinders A-2 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. This has been layered onto slightly larger olive green card stock using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Runner - Ultra and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using 3D Foam Squares.

The Clock has been popped up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares and a coat of Dimensional Magic added to give it a glossy finish.  I have framed the clock using a negative image from the Shapeabilities Periscope Etched Dies by Seth Apter and a computer generated sentiment popped up below the clock.

Corrugated card has been added along with green ribbon, twine and a key charm.  Finishing off with some white spatters.  It is hard to believe this has all been sitting on my desk! Wink:wink!!
