Challenge 33 Top 3 Inspiration - Time Flies

Good morning everyone, 

Today is Top 3 reminder day, our winner's from the last challenge as chosen by the DT. Unfortunately two of our ladies were unable to take part, but we have a stunning card for inspiration from Carolyn.

Carolyn had this to say:

I was so pleased to be selected in the top 3 for my first ever entry into any craft blog challenge. It was Jenny Marples that inspired me to create a blog after I showed her some photos of my cards  when she did a recent demo at Daisy's in Coventry. 

The colours used included hickory smoke, black soot, weathered wood, mustard seed, dried marigold and ripe persimmon distress ink pads to create the background. I stamped the ink onto my craft mat, spritzed with water then laid the card onto the mat to pick up the colour. For the other colours I stamped the colour onto acetate, spritzed and then laid over the card, drying with heat gun between each colour. I used the clock embossing folder to create the clocks and stamped the butterflies and dragonflies with black memento ink pads. The butterflies were cut out and glued onto the background with the wings curled to create dimension. 
I'm new to blogging so very few posts to date but look forward to creating and adding more in the near future. I also intend to add some of my cards I have previously made.

Isn't this a gorgeous card?  Please hop over to Carolyn's blog and leave her some love if you can.

Here is our Challenge DT's and Demonstrator's inspiration again for you, in case you missed it first time around.
