it's Christmas time

scroll down for today's other post
So I did another version on this card below also for the 2S4Y challenge and for the Moxie Fab Christmas in the Old Country Challenge. As I said before, I love the Moxie challenge, but my old country is Cuba, so it is hard to relate! Let's hope I got it sort of right ;).
This time I went more literal with the sketch. I decided to get that "folk art" feel with my faux Basic Grey wall paper. I just had to use this fancy frame from Hambly. It is so cool!
This card is really busy compared to what I normally do, but it's really fun to step out of the box, and I do love the patterns of the Basic Grey paper! I did another pun again on this card because, well, I can't help it! haha! Thanks for looking at two clock cards, I hope I didn't make you too cuckoo! :)
Card stock: Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm), Recollections (light blue)
Patterned paper: Basic Grey (eskimo kisses), Hambly (frame wallpaper)
Stamps: A Muse (cuckoo clock), Technique Tuesday (start me up quincy), My Sentiment's Exactly (multi script)
Ink: Versamark, Stampin' Up! (wild wasabi, real red)
Glitter: Martha Stewart (crystal)
Punch: EK Success (embossed scallop)
Ribbon: out of a jar on my desk ;)
Embossing powder: Whisper (sea foam white)
