Make Every Minute Count - Flourishes January Pre-Release Challenge

Ring in the new year with “Father Time” or “Baby New Year” – this challenge is a fight between new and old! To be in the running, simply use a card that showcases an image of time (i.e. one of our calendars, the Moments in Time set) or one that showcases little baby new year i.e. a baby card. Either will get you in the running. Just link your card up on the Flourishes Blog for your chance to win!

It's almost time for the January release, so that means it's time for the Pre-release challenge! For my card, I used the Moments In Time stamp set. I'd not inked up the gorgeous hour glass before so I thought it was time. I stamped it on patterned paper and colored it with Copic markers, using these collections:

Then I cut it out and popped it up on more of the same paper and stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the image panel. Finally, I added some twine, a Prima flower, and some black pearls.
